The Community Archives and Heritage Group (CAHG) is a national group which aims to support and promote community archives in the UK & Ireland. We bring together bodies and organisations concerned with community archives, and provide a forum for the regular exchange of views and information.
Until 2009, the Community Archives and Heritage Group was run on an informal basis by a group of interested volunteers and professionals. To give us a proper foundation, in June 2009 we adopted a constitution. Membership is free and open to anyone. We invite you to become a member.
In 2011 we awarded our first Community Archive & Heritage Awards, to celebrate the importance of community archives and to promote best practice.
CAHG is now a Special Interest Group of ARA (UK & Ireland)
