South East Museum Development Programme launch this year's Annual Return data collection

Last year, we launched our first Annual Return data capture execise gathering information from museums for the 2012-13 financial year.

It was completed by 98 Accredited museums (and a total of 112) out of the 237 Accredited museums in the South East and thus a return rate of 41% was achieved.

This year, we have teamed up with other Museum Development providers in England, adopting a shared approach that will help demonstrate, and prove, the social and economic importance of museums both locally and regionally, to funders and stakeholders.

We will publish the results and produce advocacy materials so you can use the information directly.

This year, the Annual Return survey will be easier to complete, with ongoing support on how to find the information and what format to submit it in being provided by our South West partner, Tom Newman (email him on 

Your Museum Development Officer will contact you in March 2015 to invite you to share your data.
