  • established for educational and heritage purposes
  • appropriately organised to hold and/or develop collections of artefacts (in some cases a single artefact)
  • able to provide regular access to the item to be funded
  • viable in the medium to long term. The group should have a large membership base and be able to demonstrate that its membership is not static and that new members are replacing those that leave
