Case Studies

Since the launch of the British Academy Research Project ‘Digitising the Mixed Economy of Welfare in Britain’ we have been collecting case studies of how voluntary organisations have preserved their archives, used them to develop their own projects, or enabled others to access and use their material.

This section contains links to the case studies we have gathered so far. If you would like to contribute a case study telling us about your organisation or a project you have done with voluntary organisation archives please download and complete this form and email it to You might also find inspiration for your own project here. If so, visit our resources page for guidance on working with voluntary sector archives.
