Heritage Compass is supporting the sector to develop essential skills in business planning, audience development, leadership and change management, with the aim of creating a better connected, informed and resilient heritage landscape across England.
Participating organisations will benefit from a range of training, mentoring and peer learning, through which each organisation will develop a clear business plan, a developed income strategy and the tools and knowledge to respond to their specific needs and challenges.
