Heritage Partnership Scheme

The support of the business community is essential to the continued success of Dundee Heritage Trust. To this end, we provide commercially attractive packages which make sound business sense for a company to sign up to.

Through our Heritage Partnership Scheme your own staff, existing clients, potential customers and visiting dignitaries can all make use of our facilities, giving them a positive, interesting and cultural experience.
You can help support the Trusts outreach work by joining its partnership scheme or by pledging a donation.
