The Heritage Consortium is coordinated by the History Department at the University of Hull and consists of Bradford, Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds Beckett, Northumbria, Sheffield Hallam and Teesside universities.

The Consortium was established in 2013 and is supported by £1.85 million of postgraduate funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and £1.11 million provided by its seven members.
