AIM Pilgrim Trust Collections Care Audit Scheme

The Collections Care Audit Scheme is run by AIM in partnership with Icon and is generously funded by the Pilgrim Trust. Collections Care Audit grants enable small museums to undertake a basic professional collections care audit. Working in partnership with Icon, AIM maintains a roster of 40 approved accredited conservators (ACRs) who undertake the audits to help museums identify key collection care issues and priorities. The grant covers a standard three-day audit, which is a strong starting point for museums that have not previously had professional conservation advice.

Tru Vue Conservation & Exhibition Grant Scheme

We know that museums and galleries are dealing with the disruption caused by the pandemic and they need to make changes to the way that their collections are cared for and presented to visitors. TruVue and Icon would like to support conservation and care of collections teams to deliver projects that will address these challenges through this targeted grant scheme. The projects either protect an object or objects already on display in order to reduce physical contact by members of the public, or enable an object that is not currently on display to be presented to visitors in a safe way.

“They have such interesting collections and quite a few problems so it would be a great opportunity to pull together this information with the support of an AIM grant.”
