This is a collaborative project funded by the University of Stirling and Historic Environment Scotland. Throughout the project, supervision will be provided by colleagues from both institutions.


Practical guidance and expertise is provided by a Social Value Reference Group, consisting of colleagues from within Historic Environment Scotland. Both partners also have excellent connections to wider networks of heritage sector professionals and academics.

The research has been ethically approved via the University of Stirling General University Ethics Panel.

This project supports the Valuing the Historic Environment programme of the Centre for Environment, Heritage and Policy at the University of Stirling, lead by Siân Jones.
