Museums Support

Essex County Council Cultural Development supports museums across the county including Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock via the Museum Development Officer, providing advice, signposting and practical support to museums in three key areas:

  • Collections Care
  • Organisational Sustainability
  • Audience Engagement

This includes, but is not limited to, governance, trustee and volunteer recruitment, income generation, marketing, education and conservation.

The Museum Development Officer also provides a strategic lead for museums in the county, working with our partner organisations SHARE Museums Ease, Museums Essex and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to develop training and project opportunities.
