If you want to get involved with a heritage project in your area, the first thing to do is to find out more about more your local Building Preservation Trust. The UK Association of Building Preservation Trusts is the voice for building preservation trusts, promoting and supporting the rescue and sustainable use of historic buildings. 

The Heritage Network Trust website is packed full of information on trusts near you and how you can get involved in local heritage projects. If there isn't one near you, why not think about setting up a trust yourself?

The Architectural Heritage Fund has lots of advice on next steps on its website. SAVE Britain's Heritage is another organisation that can show you how to set up a campaign or action group to save a local building or historic place that's at risk.
