Your support

Looking after Chatsworth and its collection requires constant attention, with conservation and maintenance needs to the fore. Many people care deeply about Chatsworth and its future - as a Patron of Chatsworth you will play a significant role in helping us meet this need.

As a Patron your support will make a tangible difference by contributing directly to conservation needs that the charity is currently unable to undertake. There is an ever-increasing list of projects requiring urgent attention for which your support will be critical; this could include painting conservation, archive digitisation or historic restoration.
