About Heritage Compass


Heritage Compass is growing! 


In 2020 Cause4 launched Heritage Compass - a brand-new Business Support Programme funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Working with our consortium partners Creative United and the Arts Marketing Association this new programme has been designed to grow resilience and invigorate the heritage sector across England.


From June 2021, thanks to additional funding from the Heritage Fund, we are delighted to be able to open up participation in the programme to twice as many heritage organisations.  

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. The 12-month project is free to take part in and there are a number of access grants are available to ensure that all organisations are able to engage fully. 


We have a wonderful and diverse mix of organisations taking part so far and we are always looking for more organisations to join us.
