AIU Race Relations Resource Centre and Education Trust

The Resource Centre is free to visit and includes hundreds of books on the history of race, migration and ethnicity. Our archive contains a wide range of documents, leaflets, posters, photographs and ephemera donated by global majority communities across Greater Manchester. The Education Trust offers ongoing training to community groups with an interest in producing archive- quality research materials. We can also help with other aspects of project planning and delivery–from bid writing support to workshops, exhibition space and the long-term preservation of your research.
