The HeritageDIY toolkit shares stories from community groups. Tips, insights and options are offered for planning, managing and delivering community research projects.

Watch this introduction to the toolkit:


Whether you are new to heritage research or are experienced and only need information on a key point, are conducting a small or large-scale project, we hope you find the toolkit useful.



The HeritageDIY toolkit is an output of the AHRC funded Preserving Place: A Cultural Mapping project. Collaboration of HLF funded Connected Communities groups with University of East Anglia and Southampton personnel, as well as Community Action Norfolk, occurred at every stage of the research, design and production stage.
