Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact to register your interest.

New Heritage Funding Helpline launched

The Giving to Heritage project has launched the Heritage Funding Helpline as a result of requests for adhoc advice from a fundraising specialist.

This new source of advice will enable you to pose a question to a fundraising expert, or gain help with reviewing an application and receive fundraising advice as and when you need it. This support is only available to those actively involved in a Heritage group or organisation.

All information is given by the Institute of Fundraising as current best practice. However, this is not a substitute for professional legal or financial advice.

Details of how to access support are available from the Giving to Heritage website.
