Further help and support

In addition to providing advice and support towards making an application to either our Cataloguing Grants or Scoping Grants funding strands, we can also assist with advice and guidance for fundraising more generally. This additional support includes access to advice and guidance, e-learning modules on fundraising, workshops, links to fundraising resources, and links to further development support within the Archive Sector Development team at The National Archives.


As part of the HLF funded Fundraising for Archives programme which ran from 2016 to 2017, The National Archives has released a series of online courses so you can undertake fundraising training wherever you are in the UK. Video tutorials and step-by-step guidance introduce you to the topic and guide you through online activities: these will enable you to put your learning into practice and tailor it to your archive service. Find out what training is available and how to get started.


In November and December 2017 we ran two workshops on the Archives Revealed programme. These workshops provided an overview of the programme, and covered how to undertake a significance assessment and show evidence of need for cataloguing to take place. These skills will be helpful for completing a phase 1 application.

Our workshop held at the National Archives/RLUK DCDC17 Conference on 29th November 2017 was recorded, and videos are now available to assist applicants to the Archives Revealed programme, and archives more generally.

Please see the Help with Your Application page for links to the videos.
