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. These grants create opportunities for research, innovation and transformative projects in the archive sector.

We will offer two grants of up to £15,000, and a number of smaller grants of up to £5,000, focused on addressing digital transformation, environmental sustainability and inclusive practice in the archives sector.
