We work with a range of partner organisations and networks, ranging from large national institutions to local community groups.

Heritage partners

These are some of the groups that we are working with to protect and promote the historic environment:

Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW)

RCAHMW investigates, interprets and makes available authoritative information about the historic environment. It also maintains the National Monuments Record of Wales and manages Historic Wales, the map-enabled portal for historic environment information in Wales.

Archaeological Trusts

The four Welsh archaeological trusts were founded more than 40 years ago to provide comprehensive archaeological advice for all of Wales. They also compile and maintain the statutory historic environment records for Wales on behalf of the Welsh Ministers.

Clwyd–Powys Archaeological Trust

Dyfed Archaeological Trust

Glamorgan–Gwent Archaeological Trust

Gwynedd Archaeological Trust

Historic Wales Strategic Partnership

Cadw, RCAHMW, National Museum of Wales and National Library
of Wales are working together to collaborate and share expertise,
for example, skills development, customer service and commercial

Historic Environment Group

The Welsh Ministers established this high-level forum to take a strategic overview of issues and opportunities in the historic environment — including climate change, skills and the economic value of the historic environment — and promote common approaches to address these.

The group is made up of representatives from the major organisations in Wales with historic environment interests.

Built Heritage Forum

Much of Cadw’s work involves close liaison with Welsh local authorities, particularly on planning and development management matters. The Built Heritage Forum provides a network for conservation officers from Wales’s 25 local planning authorities (22 councils and the 3 National Park authorities).

Welsh Places of Worship Forum

Many historic places of worship in Wales have closed or are under threat of closure. This forum brings together denominations and other stakeholders to find new solutions for historic places of worship as well as sharing information and best practice.
