Sporting Heritage has recently launched a comprehensive toolkit providing wide ranging guidance and support for anyone working with heritage collections.

The Toolkit is aimed at anyone with a heritage collection not just those with items, artefacts and material relating to sport. It is full of tips and advice drawn from across the heritage, volunteer, charity and business sectors and beyond to bring you best practice examples to support organisations in the care and management of their collections.

Topics currently cover:

  1. Governance
  2. Income generation
  3. Fundraising
  4. Financial planning
  5. Access
  6. Evaluation
  7. Learning
  8. Audiences
  9. Collections management and care

More topics are coming in the new year – including marketing, community engagement, staff and volunteers and digital.

The Toolkit is structured around three levels of activity, broadly based on knowledge and experience of the topic.
