Ideas Bank Community Heritage Project

The Research in Community Heritage project is about bringing academics from the University of East Anglia and local communities together to support one another in finding out more about community heritage.

We want to find out what local communities are interested in researching, and we are keen to share our knowledge and skills with community groups, as well as helping you to develop new ideas for researching local heritage.

Do you have stories about your town or village? Would you like to find out more about the history and heritage of your community? Do you have memories that you'd like to share and preserve for future generations?

Submit your idea for a community heritage project to our Ideas Bank, and we can help you develop your idea into a bid for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant.

To find out more about the project, follow us on  and , or contact us to stay up to date on the project.
