Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage are delighted to be part of the first 2020 cohort of Cause4‘s Heritage Compass, a brand-new Business Support Programme funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Working with 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.

Thie Programme is for small or medium sized heritage organisations that have an ambition to become more resilient, connected and informed. It allows heritage organisations to build their resilience through working together, as well as developing individual strategies.

Organisations will gain tailored training, mentoring and peer learning, developing strategy and moving forward as part of a dynamic new cohort of Heritage organisations.

We are very excited to have been accepted onto the scheme and look forward to working with Cause4 over the next two years.
