Email your MP asking them to oppose funding cuts to the Welsh heritage sector

Heritage bodies are currently facing substantial cuts to our budgets in the coming financial year and possibly the next. We are expecting cuts of between 10.5% and 22% to our Grant in Aid. This follows over a decade of austerity, underfunding and cuts, sitting in contrast to the Scottish Government’s decision to invest in the heritage sector by awarding a 4.2% increase.

We strongly encourage you to write to your workplace’s MP to raise awareness and to ask them to oppose the cuts. This will provide an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the issues facing the sector.
