Networks for Change Fund

The purpose of the Networks for Change funding scheme is to encourage collaboration among archive services by providing funding that leads to strong archive service networks. These networks in turn deliver beneficial solutions, models and approaches that contribute to an efficient, resilient and capable archive sector.

The Networks for Change fund provides grants of up to £15,000 to encourage the development of collaborative networks of archive services as part of a strategic approach to support the ongoing delivery of services, resilience and management of collections.
