  Cadw - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cadw is a semi-autonomous publicly-funded body with the mission to protect, conserve, and to promote the built heritage of Wales — the Welsh equivalent of English Heritage and Historic Scotland.
This does not mean that Cadw owns them, but it is responsible for their upkeep and for making them accessible to the public.
Cadw is also responsible for "listing" and ensuring the preservation of historic buildings and archaeological sites.

 Cadw and Castle Conservation
As one might expect with such a concentration in one area, castles form a significant portion of the medieval monuments in state care and managed by Cadw, and much of Cadw's ancient monuments grant-aid budget is dedicated to castle conservation.
However, this did provide an opportunity for Cadw, and like-minded organisations, to encourage local authorities to place the care of their monuments higher on their agendas and, through scheduled monument consent procedures, ensure that the work was done to an acceptable standard.
Cadw will work with private owners, local authorities, national parks, the Countryside Council for Wales and the various funding agencies, such as HLF, to bring all available resources to bear on this problem.

The Trust is a long-standing partner of Cadw, which has provided core funded our services for over ten years, and has consistently recognised the importance of the voluntary network of civic societies in Wales.
We also take a broader look at Cadw's successes in meeting the stringent targets set for it; we believe its record of achievement is significant, and that where it has disappointed, it has often been a consequence of underfunding and consequent lack of staffing and resources.
Despite the excellent work done by Cadw, there is a much broader agenda that now deserves consideration, one that goes beyond Cadw's limited remit as it was defined in the early 1980s, and in which the roles of local government, agencies, the private and voluntary sectors, and government itself all need to be considered.
