Crisis Management Team

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.

The Scottish Representatives from the Implementation Group are Kiara King and Cheryl Brown. For details about the other members of the team please see the Managing Business Archives website. If you are aware of business records at risk in Scotland then please contact Cheryl by email on or Kiara by email at or on 01505 328488.
