The radical archive has been compiled by a range of university academics, independent researchers, postgraduate students, and members of the public. The project was established by members of the North East Labour History Society and the Histories of Activism research group at Northumbria University.

The project was made possible by funding from Northumbria University’s Higher Education Innovation Fund, and the website was constructed by the Community IT Academy.
