Archives Revealed is a partnership programme between The National Archives, The Pilgrim Trust and the Wolfson Foundation, and is the only funding stream in the UK dedicated to cataloguing and unlocking archives. There are two funding strands:

  • Cataloguing grants: up to £45,000 for archives to create catalogues of important archival collections. This is an annual programme that opens in the autumn each year.
  • Scoping grants: these fund an assessment report incorporating expert advice on a range of areas relating to collections management and the development of your collection. This is a rolling programme with decisions made on a quarterly basis.
