Networks & Forums

Getting involved in different networks and geographic forums can encourage greater partnership working, and provide support for your organisation.

Forum Connections

Forum Connections was a 4-year project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF), to encourage greater partnership working in Scottish museums through investment in Scotland’s geographic forums.

Geographic Forums

Find out about Scotland’s regional museum forums and the support they offer to the museum sector workforce.

Several small groups of adults stand and engage in conversation.

Grassroots Support Groups

Grassroots Support Groups operate across the wider heritage sector and offer peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, issue campaigning and support around areas of shared interest or identity.
