Through our work we aim to raise knowledge, awareness, understanding and commitment to Western Australia’s natural and cultural heritage.
We do this with the conservation and interpretation of the heritage places and collections we manage on behalf of the community and government of Western Australia, through our education and learning programs, and through community consultation and engagement.
We undertake research and investigation in support of heritage and conservation, as well as monitoring, assessing and acting upon issues which impact directly and indirectly on the conservation of heritage.
We offer programs that cover a range of immersive learning experiences and discipline areas from history and humanities to maths and geography. All of which are aligned with the West Australian curriculum.
Every five years the National Trust adopts a Strategic Plan to guide the activity of the organisation. Through this strategic plan the National Trust of Western Australia aspires to awaken the community to the value of heritage. The plan sets out to achieve this by connecting Western Australians with the story of their heritage. The stories found in the rich and diverse natural and cultural heritage are the embodiment of our memories – the vast collection of things – both tangible and intangible – which we chose to keep and which we choose to keep for the future.
Reconciliation Action Plan
The National Trust of Western Australia is committed to developing mutual respect and meaningful partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. With the alignment of its Reconciliation Action Plan objectives to those of its Strategic Plan, the National Trust aims to strengthen existing and develop new relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, communities and organisations, creating respectful and mutually beneficial opportunities so all West Australians are connected with their heritage.
Access and Inclusion Plan
The National Trust is committed to outcomes that improve access to its places through a range of innovative means. We aim to increase participation in heritage experiences, events and education programs using a flexible and collaborative approach and work towards improved access for all members, volunteers and the community.
