The Outreach Team is a core part of the public engagement offer at The National Archives.
We commit ourselves to challenging goals as set out in our Archives for Everyone strategy: to build trust, tear down barriers and be bold.
We will explore our records with creativity and innovation drawing out wherever possible a warmth and humanity in the stories we tell.
‘Thank you so much for sharing these incredible stories, for how we can all work collaboratively with therapists, how this can hugely support the process and what great benefits it brings. Such insightful thoughts. Thank you’ – audience member commenting on the work Outreach have done mixing archival research with therapeutic practice, May 2021
