To support our leadership role for the archives sector in England and Wales, and to deliver Archives Unlocked, the Government’s vision for archives, The National Archives provides grants for skills, innovation and engagement in the archives sector. 

To align with key moments of national cultural importance, and to connect archives with their communities and the wider public, The National Archives has launched a programme of Engagement Grants. This year the grants were themed around the concept of “Place. with a maximum budget of up to £3,000.

The fund is currently closed with the next round of Engagement Grants due to be announced later in 2024.
