Icon sets out why investment in cultural heritage and conservation is vital for economic growth, the wellbeing of people and the UK's international competitiveness

Conservation doesn't just restore cultural heritage - it safeguards our nation's recovery.

Cultural heritage is a national asset. It is vital to the economy, generating a total GVA of £31 billion and supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs. Core to the UK's brand, our iconic heritage draws millions of people from all over the world. It gives places their character and provides a basis for civic identity. Conservation preserves this cultural heritage, facilitating public access and enjoyment and enabling heritage to maximise its economic and social value.
