Therapeutic Living With Other People's Children (2010)
An integrated oral history, archive, internet-based, and person-to-person approach to gathering, preserving and sharing a neglected aspect of the nation's industrial, cultural and social heritage: 'Therapeutic Living With Other People's Children', a major archive and oral history project.
With support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, between January 2010 and October 2011 the Planned Environment Therapeutic Trust (PETT) worked with volunteers from five children's communities to record personal histories, preserve the archives of individuals and communities, and help people to share and learn about their own, and other people's heritage.
Although the project funding came to an end, the work itself goes on!
More information and project community spaces can be found on the archived project website www.otherpeopleschildren.org.uk, where the Project Director's final report and a copy of the Project Booklet can also be downloaded. To request a hardcopy of the publication, please contact us directly.
