Be part of our future

The Mary Rose Trust has great ambitions for the future and we will be sharing these with you as they turn into realisable plans.

Our five-year plan is focused on delivering strategic objectives of:

  • Financial sustainability
  • Conservation and interpretation
  • Engagement, outreach and learning
  • Global leadership in Tudor heritage and maritime archaeology


The five-year plan will result in a dynamic, outward looking, independent Trust, operating from a strengthened financial platform, a sector-leading organisation fit to embrace the challenges of the future; and a museum which remains a showcase for all that is extraordinary about the Mary Rose. The Mary Rose and its Trust will be resilient and sustainable. The Mary Rose is not standing still, and neither must the Trust. We look ahead with confidence and excitement – there is so much more to do. We hope you will feel able to continue to support our vision for the future.

If you are considering providing a grant to the Mary Rose Trust, please contact Victoria Gregory (Grants Manager) for a discussion at [email protected] or 02392 750521.
