The scheme has been developed to help museums recover from the ongoing effects of the Covid pandemic and enforced closures that have affected many in the sector, with a special focus on small museums and others that have found it difficult to access other support.
It is the aim of the scheme to enable museums to undertake work that has been put on hold due to a lack of resources, closure of buildings and lack of access to collections, the furloughing or loss of skilled staff or volunteers, or other consequences of the pandemic and its effects. These are all factors that have had an impact on museums throughout the country, worsening existing challenges.
The Brighter Day audit grants are aimed at non-accredited museums and other organisations that are not eligible for the AIM/ Pilgrim Trust collections care audit grants. Please do not apply for a Brighter Day audit grant if you are eligible for the AIM/ Pilgrim Trust scheme. If you’re not sure which scheme is right for you, then please get in touch with Tonia Collett.
