In conjunction with Civic Voice at IWMN, Manchester


The North West Association of Civic Trusts and Societies provides a support network for Civic Societies, Trusts and other organisations in the North West which are concerned with civic pride, the built environment and public spaces.


Formed in 2002, NWACTS is the region of Civic Voice (our National body) in the North West of England.

Since it was established,  NWACTS has sought to provide opportunities for members of local societies to enjoy the benefits of having contact with others throughout the North West.  One way this has been achieved is by arranging an Autumn Gathering, held in various locations each year, from Chester to Penrith and from Merseyside to Manchester.  The different venues have offered the chance to have a shared experience of the local built environment whether historic or contemporary.  Recent meetings & activities  have been held in Bacup, Timperley, Preston, Penrith & at the BBC in Salford.  This networking enables different ways of dealing with problems to be compared and identifies areas of common interest.  Other organisations, such as the Victorian Society, with whom we have a working relationship or have similar objectives, are encouraged to participate where appropriate so that the perspective and range of debate can be extended.  They are also social occasions!  For details of forthcoming events click here.
