Crisis Response Team

Friday, 17 December 2010

A Crisis Response Team was established by the Business Archives Strategy for England & Wales in 2009. This small team was been established to help co-ordinate rescue work and offer help and advice where business enter into receivership liquidation so that archives can hopefully be saved for the nation. The team works closely with local archive repositories and other organisations with an interest in business heritage.

At the first Implementation Group meeting of the Scottish Strategy is was decided that Kiara King (Ballast Trust Archivist) should become the new representative for Scotland.

If you are aware of any business that may be going into receivership or ceasing trading then please contact Kiara ( with information and the details will be circulated to the Crisis Response Team so that the appropriate action can be taken.
