Vision and Mission

Our Vision

We aim to collect and preserve the written, printed, recorded and digital heritage of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland and encourage as many people as possible to access, use and contribute to this rich and diverse archive in many different ways.

Our Mission

The Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland is provided by Leicestershire County Council in partnership with the City of Leicester and County of Rutland. This service is the means by which all three local authorities meet their legal responsibilities to collect, care for and provide access to records.

We are an area with a rich history that values its heritage, engages its communities, welcomes those who visit here and works together with other agencies and organisations to ensure a future for the past. We will do everything that we can to achieve this, whilst recognising the limitations of our building/s and resources, by offering the broadest, most engaging relevant access for all our users.
