European exchange programme
INTO members join forces to improve access
The Staff Exchange in European Cultural Heritage Trusts (SEECHT) project offers practitioners from within the INTO family the opportunity to share their learning and contribute to a more open and welcoming European heritage sector.
Having learnt from their neighbouring trusts, participants will deliver projects that broaden access to all segments of the European public, whilst also welcoming members of heritage trusts from other countries as part of our INTO Places programme.
A toolkit, to be shared widely among European heritage organisations and policy makers, will capture the incredible strength of variety possessed by European heritage trusts, and provide the blueprint for continued collaboration between project participants.
The project is led by the Czech National Trust, working closely with INTO and partner organisations Herita in Flanders, National Trust for Scotland, National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, FAI Fondo Ambiente Italiano and the National Trust of Slovakia.

Exchange of experience and expertise
Secondments will be organised around two themes:
How can our sites attract the widest possible audience? What programmes can be implemented to ensure that our places and the stories we tell are relevant to people from all backgrounds? How can we improve accessibility for people living with disabilities?
How can European heritage trusts create a combined heritage offer? How can we be certain that members of another European trust receive a warm welcome when using their membership at our places? What steps can be taken to standardise the membership offer?Explore INTO Places
