Much of Cadw’s work is planned or delivered in partnership with other organisations, drawn from the public, private and voluntary sectors.

The Historic Environment Group is Cadw’s primary forum for partnership working with the heritage sector in Wales. In addition, Cadw liaises with local authority and third sector specialists through the Built Heritage Forum.

In recent years Cadw has also hosted subject specific ‘summits’ and open Treftadaeth (Heritage) conferences to explore matters of concern and identify new partnership opportunities.
