Testimonials from our participants
‘A fantastic opportunity to network and speak to other organisations.’
‘I think that just having some support to make sure that the learning offer we set up is of a high quality will be really great!’
‘The grant we received has pushed forward the installation of Wi-Fi, enabled the purchase of a HD video camera and sent a volunteer to a two-day conference on the use of digital engagement within the heritage sector.’
