Who we are

Historic England

Historic England is the public body that helps people care for, enjoy and celebrate England's spectacular historic environment.

Find out more about Historic England on their website.

The Historic England Foundation

The Foundation was created primarily to help Historic England raise philanthropic donations to its innovative projects and programmes that cannot be funded by government funding alone.

Like Historic England, we care passionately about the places that define who we are and where we've come from as a nation, the stories they tell and the people who live, work and play among them.

With the support of our generous funders, we enable Historic England to protect, champion and save even more inspiring places.
