The primary purposes for which the Trust is established are to promote the conservation and preservation of archives for the benefit of the public and to advance public education on matters connected with archives. One of the main ways in which we do this is by providing funds by way of grants so that local history projects can be progressed. The success rate for applications has been high so don’t hesitate to contact us about a project that you would like our support for. We will help guide you on any application.
Small grant applications are considered by the Grants Committee every two to three weeks and Main Grants are considered every six months although there is scope for an extraordinary meeting to consider an ’emergency’ application.
Grant applications are judged on the extent to which they meet one or more of the following five eligibility criteria although considerably more detail is expected for main and emergency grants (between £500 and £10,000) than for Small Grants (up to £500).
