The National Trust Advocacy Toolkit is a free online resource created by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) to support individuals and communities to advocate for the protection of places of cultural heritage significance. We have worked with heritage experts, planners, lawyers, and communities across Victoria to develop advocacy guides covering key areas of heritage planning. The Advocacy Toolkit will continue to grow and evolve, along with the challenges we face in the recognition and conservation of our heritage places.
