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 support archivists in building the skills needed for the future,  including in digital, environmental sustainability, and diversity, equity and inclusion, The National Archives is delighted to be offering Skills Bursaries of up to £500, for archivists seeking to access training, career professional development or mentoring that would not usually be available in their own organisational development programmes.
