Heritage Keepers - Explore Your Place - Place Based Learning and Community Stewardship

Heritage Keepers

Heritage Keepers is a free programme for schools and communities that will enable them to explore the built, natural, and cultural heritage of their local place and then plan a funded action to enhance their place.

 

In-person, online and blended learning options are available. So far 157 groups and schools have taken part in the programme, with most going on to complete a local project or actions. These funded actions included pond building, local heritage trails, signage for biodiversity, oral history projects and local heritage booklets.

THE CLOSING DATE FOR THE 2023/2024 HERITAGE KEEPERS PROGRAMME HAS PASSED.

WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR HERITAGE KEEPERS. WE EXPECT THE NEXT ROUND WILL OPEN IN SEPTEMBER.

FOLLOW OUR SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS TO BE THE FIRST TO KNOW WHEN THE NEXT ROUND OF APPLICATIONS OPEN. YOU CAN ALSO ADD YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS TO THIS FORM AND WE WILL EMAIL YOU WHEN APPLICATIONS OPEN.

"I feel the very act of focusing in on our local space, through the different heritage lenses, just that close looking and discussion awoke or deepened in many of the children their sense of belonging in their communities, their sense of pride in their place and ultimately a sense of agency in regard to it." – Teacher

"Heritage Keepers has reinvigorated my resolve to do more to educate, lead and take part in projects in my community." – Community member

Have fun, learn something new, make a difference – become a Heritage Keeper!

Heritage Keepers is run by Burrenbeo Trust in partnership with The Heritage Council.
