Crisis Management Team

Monday, 16 January 2012

A Crisis Management Team was created in 2009 as part of the English and Welsh strategy. The team was created to represent all parts of the archive sector to organise agreed responses to business archives under threat and it exists to monitor and assist in steering records at risk into suitable homes.

Details of the team members are now available on the Managing Business Archives website.  The Scottish Representative is Kiara King, Ballast Trust Archivist.

If you are aware of business records at risk in Scotland then please contact Kiara by email at or on 01505 328488.
