We think our collections are inspiring and want to make them relevant and accessible to wider groups of people. We do this in partnership with community groups and organisations and we love how creativity and sharing knowledge allow us to understand and interpret our collections better.

Have a look at examples of our current and past projects and please get in touch if you have ideas on how to be involved.

Developed to mark the National Day of Arts in Care Homes in 2020, Five Photos is an online resource designed to engage older generations with an opportunity to explore archival images from Scotland to Botswana.

Here you can find a selection of resources created during the course of our projects that can be used with your own community groups.

If you would like to get involved with our programme please contact us at outreach@nationalarchives.gov.uk
