HEF and HE publish Heritage Recovery Plan
In the Heritage Recovery Plan, HEF/HE write: The structure of this plan is based on the Tourism Recovery Plan, adapted only as necessary, to reflect the varied nature of heritage activity. It covers four themes, two of which (Re-opening and Resilience) are divided into two overlapping phases of urgency:
- Immediate and short term – in effect until March 2022.
- Medium and long term – from September 2021 until November 2024.
|Re-opening||Urgent action required to enable heritage attractions, businesses and activity to re-open/re-start safely and sustainably.|
|Resilience||Support needed to ensure the sector returns to a sustainable state of operation.|
|Skills||Necessary interventions to safeguard existing and replace lost sector skills.|
|Return to growth||Additional measures designed to ensure heritage can play its part in the country’s recovery from the pandemic.|
The Plan sets out how the heritage sector, with support from the Government, can get back on its feet and play a full part in helping the country recover from the social and economic damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Plan is written for three audiences:
- Government. To clearly illustrate the action required from Government to support the sector.
- Sector. To establish a blueprint framework of how the sector can work together on recovery
- Other stakeholders.To alert other organisations with an interest in heritage to the role they can provide to aid recovery with appropriate support.
