At the heart of our Cause is the challenge to help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society in some of the greatest palaces ever built. That means we are continually looking for ways to improve access and diversity - in the visitors we attract, the staff we employ and the services we provide.Equality and diversity policy Gender Pay Gap Report 2017/2018

We are storytellers, and we are conservators. We give these palaces continuing life. We welcome people, we stage events. We entertain. This gives us a huge responsibility, not only for the buildings but also for the stories told through the objects that live in them. As part of our Royal Charter we have a responsibility to manage and conserve these buildings, collections and interiors to support our Cause to help everyone explore how monarchs and people have shaped society in some of the greatest palaces ever built. This means that we are continually looking at ways of improving the management of, and information about, the collections under our care. To help us do this we have a set of policies which explain how we manage, develop and care for the collections.Collections and conservation policies
