Charity and Governance

* Artists Impression of Future Plan

The Staffordshire Regiment Museum is a registered charity, Number 1096944, and is governed by a board of very active Trustees. There are currently 13 Trustees, including Chairman and three ex-officio members, drawn from varying backgrounds.

Day-to-day the Museum is run by a part-time Director (the Regimental Secretary), a part-time Curator and a full-time Assistant Curator. But the Museum’s functioning depends greatly on a large group of exceptional Volunteers who all have important roles in educational programmes, research, events and front of house. The Museum is a Ministry of Defence funded Army Heritage Site but relies greatly on non-public funds to achieve its aims and objectives.

Aims and Objectives

The principle object of the Museum is “to educate the public and members of the Regiment in the history and military accomplishments of the Staffordshire Regiment and its antecedents” and its key aims are:

  • To tell the stories the Staffordshire and Mercian Regiments and their predecessors and to provide a full understanding of the soldier in all his aspects, militarily and socially.
  • To provide a modern Museum with appeal and value to the Midlands and to visitors from elsewhere in the UK and abroad.
  • To provide a valuable educational resource, locally and nationally, linked to schools and other educational programmes.
  • To provide intellectual and physical access for all to the collection and, in partnership with academic institutions and other museums, a research and study facility for families and historians.
  • To provide a meeting place for veterans, serving soldiers and the wider Regimental family.

Vision

The Museum’s vision is to provide a modern and dynamic facility at Whittington Barracks that fully meets the Museum’s aims now and in the long term.

Future Plan

The future plan envisages a very major redevelopment of the Museum on the current site and for which a major fundraising campaign will be necessary.
