The Trust supports a network of civic and amenity societies across Wales. Societies are concerned with local character and sense of place. They engage with development and conservation issues. They recognise the need to think about the way places and communities are changing, and to ensure that what we build for the future respects the best of the past.
Our magazine reflects the Trust's interests in character, place and people. Its content is strongly visual. Features include articles on individual places, thematic discussions, news and reviews.
The Trust's Exploring the character of towns programme is developing resources to support community groups as they explore the character of their streets and towns. It is closely allied to Cadw's urban characterisation initiative. With Heritage Lottery Fund support, the Trust is working with community groups to develop methodologies of community involvement in characterisation and to build local capacity to engage in planning, development and regeneration issues.
Open Doors Days
Open Doors takes place throughout September and enable free entry to hundreds of local events that celebrate the architectural heritage of Wales and the wider historical built environment. Events and activities are mainly organised by volunteers. Open Doors is Wales's biggest celebration of buildings and places.
