Supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, the Scottish Heritage Angel Awards celebrate the important role that is carried out by volunteers in helping to better understand, appreciate and protect Scotland’s heritage and history for current and future generations. The awards support the delivery of the Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland – Our Place in Time, which places a strong focus on community participation and engagement in heritage. Nominations were received from volunteers, individuals and groups, involved in heritage projects of all scales, spanning the length and breadth of Scotland.
Entries for the Angel Awards were assessed by a panel of experts and volunteers from within the heritage sector before a shortlist was put before the judges, who chose an overall winner from each category.
The Awards are run by a partnership of Scottish Civic Trust, Historic Environment Scotland, Archaeology Scotland and Scottish Government. The Awards complement the existing Historic England Angel Awards.
