Volunteers are vital for the protection of England’s heritage. From caring for rural heritage sites to devising new ways of working remotely, volunteers’ skills, passion, and commitment have proved to be more crucial than ever in this challenging year.
For over a decade, Ecclesiastical’s Heritage Heroes Awards have celebrated the incredible contribution of volunteers in the heritage sector. More than a simple thank you, these awards are a great opportunity to demonstrate how communities can take ownership of the historic environment around them and make a real difference.
There are three awards categories this year:
- Heritage In Lockdown Hero Award – for a significant achievement in supporting a heritage project or site during the Covid-19 pandemic by a volunteer or group of volunteers.
- Supporting the Sector in Lockdown Award – for a volunteer, staff member, or team that has gone above and beyond to support the heritage sector during Covid-19.
- Digital Heritage Hero Award – for a volunteer or group of volunteers who have made an outstanding contribution to supporting a heritage organisation/project digitally in 2020.
More details about the award categories and criteria can be found on the nomination form.
Nominations must be made by a member of the Heritage Alliance or any member of a Heritage Alliance Member, except for nominations for Digital Heritage Hero which may be made by any UK heritage organisation.
