What Research Does SCHA Carry Out?

In 2019, SCHA worked with University of St Andrews, Ergadia and the NLS to organise roadshow consultations throughout Scotland.


The roadshow took SCHA all over Scotland, from Shetland down to the Scottish Boarders, to meet and chat to people within community heritage directly. 


It emerged that many groups and museums can often feel that concerns from a grassroots level are overlooked by higher organisations. There was support for the formation of a network to represent these views who can provide support, networking and can conduct further research relating to community heritage. 

SCHA has the expertise, experience and knowledge to identify gaps in the sector where data collected through research could lead to changes in policies and change of culture in the sector, this is what we will continue to strive to achieve.
