Why support the Mass Observation Archive

Although the Archive is in the care of the University, it is a Charity and funds are needed to support our ongoing work. We exist because people value the importance of capturing and using records of everyday life. At the heart of our work is safeguarding the records of the Mass Observation Archive for inspiring learning and research and ensuring they continue to be made available for future generations.

Our income is reliant on donations, royalties, research commissions and funding grants. With your help, we can continue to record and preserve material on everyday life in Britain for us all to enjoy.
