With funding from English Heritage, the Joint Committee of the National Amenity Societies (which includes Civic Voice) has launched a new Heritage Help advice portal.

This website can be accessed here: http://www.heritagehelp.org.uk  It brings together, for the first time, a one-stop-shop to the expertise offered by heritage organisations and offers support on saving and caring for historic assets.

The free information service is aimed at local history groups and town and parish councils facing new responsibilities for the care of their historic environment under the recent Localism Act 2011, as well as individual owners of historic properties.
