The Heritage Heroes Award

This award will be made to a team who have made an outstanding contribution to a museum or heritage organisation.

Your Heritage Heroes might be volunteers, trustees, members of staff or a combination of all. This is a way of saying Thank You to the team who have made a significant contribution.

Awards will recognise that everyone has something to offer and can play a part in the future of our museums and heritage.

Heroes must be informed by their nominator before application, and be comfortable with being nominated. The work for which they are being nominated must have taken place within the last year. Every shortlisted team will receive a certificate of thanks and recognition at the awards.

Separate awards will be made to both larger and small organisations.
