World Monuments Fund Britain

WMF Britain is a UK charity dedicated to the conservation of exceptional works of architecture and monuments for people. It could be any type of building; a church or power station, sculpture or ancient rock carving, cultural landscape or historic garden, but it will be special.

We work with partners and local communities to ensure that endangered sites in their care have a long term future. Our contribution may include funding, but is just as likely to be in the form of advice on conservation management, capacity-building, advocacy, or helping with educational or interpretative initiatives.

We are part of World Monuments Fund the leading international non-governmental organisation for the protection of cultural heritage. We are the largest affiliate of this New York-based charity, working closely together in our shared mission to save the world’s most treasured places.
