The Everton Collection

The Everton Collection is owned by The Everton Collection Charitable Trust and is housed at Liverpool Record Office, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Trust is an independent charity, chaired by Lord Grantchester and run by a board of trustees of Everton fans and senior heritage specialists. The Trust was formally set up with a Trust Deed on the 11th May 2005 and registered with the Charities Commission (Registered Charity 1109480). Objectives in the deed include advancing the education of the public in the history and social impact of Everton Football Club through the acquisition, preservation, maintenance and display (either directly or in partnership with others) of memorabilia and other artefacts linked to the Club.

With Heritage Lottery funding, the Trust purchased the David France Collection on the 31st December 2007. To secure the Collection, Everton F.C. gifted the Club's own archive to the Trust on the 7th December 2007. In 2008 the David France Collection was integrated with the Everton F.C. archive to form The Everton Collection.

The Everton Collection is housed at Liverpool Record Office. In June 2008 three members of staff were appointed to work at Liverpool Record Office on the Everton Collection.  Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Collection's project team catalogued, conserved and prepared the Collection for public access. A major exhibition, 'Everlution - The Everton Collection', was open at Liverpool Central Library between September 2009 and May 2010 attracting tens of thousands of visitors.  The Everton Collection Learning Programme was delivered to schools and community groups across Liverpool engaging thousands of learners of all ages. 

The Collection continues to be housed and cared for by Liverpool Record Office and the Trust continue to strive to make the Collection accessible to the public.
