The National Archives - Scoping Grants

Summary

A Scoping Grant funds a structured report that incorporates expert advice on a range of areas relating to collections management and the development of your collection. The report will provide an overview of the current status of the collection and analysis of overall condition, significance, existing and potential use, levels of access, and existing documentation. It will give a conclusion with recommendations about next steps and development goals for the service.
