The National Archives’ reading rooms have now re-opened to visitors - please read our COVID-19 news story for the latest information on booking and access arrangements. Many of our staff are working from home and still providing a service and point of contact for the archive sector.
Here you can find our statements relating to Archive Service Accreditation, Places of Deposit, collections safety and our funding programmes. We have also compiled a list of useful resources from other organisations and created a re-opening checklist of areas for consideration as the archives sector moves towards re-establishing access to collections.
In March 2021, the COVID-19 Archives Fund awarded grants of up to £50,000 to 25 organisations.
