New Funding Programme Launched to Support the Cataloguing and Scoping of Archives (UK)

‘Archives Revealed’ is a new partnership programme between The National Archives and The Pilgrims Trust.

It is the only source of funding available in the UK dedicated to cataloguing and unlocking archives. Archives Revealed comprises two funding strands:

Cataloguing Grants, awarding grants of up to £40,000 for archives to create catalogues of important archival collections.

The deadline for phase 1 of Cataloguing Grants is 12 January 2018.

Scoping Grants, offering grants of up to £3,000 helping archives conduct collection analysis to support development of plans for future cataloguing priorities and projects. The fund will open in February 2018.

Funding is available to the following UK organisations:

  • Public sector bodies; registered charities; other not-for-profit organisations
  • Organisations that make their collections accessible to people outside their organisation
  • Organisations that have access to professional archive expertise
  • Organisations with owned or deposited collections where public access can be guaranteed for ten years of the project end date.
