About your membership

Join the South West Fed and participate in opportunities to connect with and inspire the heritage community across the region.

As an independent membership organisation we simply wouldn't exist without our members.

Having a broad membership who are 'together for heritage', not only provides valuable income but demonstrates both the strength and breadth of heritage in the South West, and our shared concern for its future.

The South West Fed is run by our members for our members, and is an active learning organisation, inside and out. We encourage everyone to participate and contribute. Your support, in whatever capacity, helps us to:

  • Demonstrate the strength and breadth of heritage in the South West
  • Connect people together for the benefit of organisations and their audiences
  • Inspire those working in and for heritage in the South West to deliver to the highest standards

As a registered charity we rely primarily on subscriptions, with occasional grants, project funding and sponsorship for support.

We believe ‘heritage' embraces museums, galleries, collections, historic places and sites.
