Page 1 of 2

After a very successful year of providing training and support to community archives and heritage groups throughout Scotland, Scottish Council on Archives (SCA) would like to continue this good work. Building on the response of attendees to our events, we are delighted to be setting up a Scotland satellite of ARA UK & Ireland’s Community Archives and Heritage Group (CAHG).   More about CAHG Scotland can be found on our website and through Twitter @CArchivesScot. SCA is responding to the Covid 19 pandemic and providing more resources through our webpages. To keep providing the training, workshops and support focussed on your needs, we would be delighted if you would complete this short survey which will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
