Gloucestershire Archives Achieves National Accreditation


We’re delighted to report that Gloucestershire Archives has again been awarded Accredited Archive Service status. We’d particularly like to thank staff, volunteers, partners, stakeholders and funders for their contribution to this award.

The Accreditation Panel which made the award:

“…welcomed this impressive application from a reflective, committed service,

which has demonstrably used Accreditation to improve since its first award.

The Panel particularly commended the volunteer programme which shows

great thought and care for their volunteers. They also welcomed the impressive audience understanding work across multiple types of stakeholders…. They were delighted to see Gloucestershire Archives thriving and continuing to develop to meet the needs of the communities of Gloucestershire.”


The scheme is run by The National Archives and involves assessment against a rigorous quality standard set for public and private sector archives in the UK.
