Opening up Archives project receives additional funding (UK)

Opening up Archives, The UK National Archives' project to tackle skills shortages in the wider archives sector, has been allocated additional funding of over £250,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Speaking about the additional funding, Nick Kingsley, Head of Archives Sector Development, The National Archives, said: 'This is fantastic news for the archives sector. HLF's continued support and financial backing for this essential project helps us open up a career in archives to a wider, more diverse group of individuals.' The extension grant awarded as part of HLF's Skills for the Future programme will guarantee that a third year of the project runs in 2013
