Our policies

The National Archives Trust seeks to change the way audiences engage with the documentary heritage of the UK, opening up new avenues for the general public to discover archives.

We aim to create centres for exceptional education and engagement in order to enhance the capacity for The National Archives to deliver world-class programmes that allow people of all ages to access the rich archival heritage of the UK.

From Domesday to Downing Street tweets, The National Archives is a treasure trove holding over a thousand years of history. The National Archives Trust will support the most ambitious transformation programme in The National Archives’ history, making its unparalleled collections accessible to everyone through outstanding exhibitions, education and outreach activities across the country.

The National Archives Trust wants people of all ages to see, touch and engage with the things that made Britain what it is today. Inspiring future generations by changing the way they experience historical learning.
