The Black Cultural Archives (BCA) makes an important contribution to preserving and celebrating the diverse cultural heritage of Britain, as well as supporting the local community in Lambeth.

BCA has received significant support, including over £4 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore and develop Raleigh Hall in Brixton as a permanent home and heritage centre for BCA’s archives and collections.

DCMS is working with BCA, alongside The National Archives and other DCMS public bodies, to help it to become financially sustainable and to seek to develop its ambitions to become a national resource.
