Working together to protect museums and collections at risk

Yesterday (18 September) Arts Council England, with a group of key funding, development and membership bodies for the museums and heritage sector, published a joint statement on museums and collections at risk.

Although many museums are thriving, significant numbers are facing serious challenges to their long-term sustainability. There is growing concern that continued public access to some public collections and museums is at risk, and we want to ensure that we are providing museums the best guidance possible on this issue.

They, alongside fifteen other organisations and networks across the UK, have agreed to a co-ordinated approach to help support colleagues who have concerns about the future of their museums or collections.
