We offer services to heritage organisations in:
  • Developing and implementing collections care programs

  • Managing risks to collections
  • Emergency planning for collections

Collections care programs  

We provide virtual or face-to-face support and advice in creating collection care programs and developing strategies for long-term preservation of collections. This involves conducting collections care assessments, assessing potential risks and threats to collections, and, according to the results, developing a comprehensive plan or program for collections care. We assist with evaluating the resources required such as budgets, equipment, supplies, and staffing requirements. We provide ongoing education and training for collections care staff and volunteers and offer support with continuous evaluation of the effectiveness of collection care programs. 

Collections care assessments

We conduct virtual or face-to-face assessments of collections and run consultation sessions. This includes assessing the condition of collections, level of collections care and conservation practices, preservation policies and procedures, staffing, resources, and training needs. Based on the assessment results, we provide recommendations for improvements. These include suggestions for conservation, preservation strategies, disaster preparedness, risk management for collections, environmental monitoring and control, housekeeping, pest management, storage, handling, and display of collections. 

Emergency planning

We offer online or face-to-face support to heritage organisations in developing and improving their emergency planning strategies. We provide assessments of the existing emergency policies and procedures, including the Emergency Plan for Collections document, and offer advice on and support with implementing improvements. We make recommendations for further training requirements in emergency preparedness. 

 

We offer online or face-to-face Emergency Management Development Programme, specialized workshops and courses in emergency preparedness.
