The Heritage 2020 vision concentrated on five strategic areas for collaboration, each of which was addressed by a cross-sector working group looking at new ways of working together on the priorities of each theme.

The five Heritage 2020 working groups, plus the Heritage 2020 HEF subcommittee, brought together individuals from organisations across the historic environment sector in England. Each working group focused on a different theme of the Heritage 2020 Framework.
