Advocacy by definition is the process of influencing decision makers.

Advocacy is an important part of the National Trust’s activities. As a community based organisation, we are here to represent the community and bring attention to important heritage issues. As the oldest heritage organisation in the country, the National Trust campaigns on important issues.

With the establishment of heritage legislation and state government bodies with statutory powers, our role in advocacy has expanded into negotiation, education and forming partnerships to achieve good heritage outcomes.

At a local level, we are able to provide advice to owners of heritage places, local government authorities and community organisations.
