How we work

Participation is at the heart of what we do. All our projects are devised through extensive consultation and shaped by volunteers and participants. This means the people involved play an active role in recording history and make decisions about how it is shared with others. They come away with new skills for work and life.

We are a co-operative, which means that our members make decisions about On the Record together.

We are a not for profit organisation, registered as a Community Interest Company. This means we do not distribute profits to our members and that we exist to benefit the wider community.
