The AIM Pilgrim Trust collections care audit offered the ideal opportunity to seek an evaluation of our current methods of collection care and the success of our application enabled Peter Meehan ACR to visit the museum and provide a report.
The object store was completely re-organised and a systematic approach to accessioning was developed, with young volunteers involved at every stage of the project.
The AIM grant provided crucial support by enabling the museum to improve both the storage of its collection and environmental monitoring capabilities.

Closed, locked down. Collection, locked in. Two of the toughest problems for the Foundling Museum to overcome, following national closures in March 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The grant has enabled the Trust to implement guidance issued as part of an earlier AIM Pilgrim Trust Collections Care Audit and preserve their priceless and irreplaceable ‘crown jewel’ pieces for future generations.
