Hedleys Heritage Project
Hedleys Multimedia runs a unique ongoing project that focuses on the History of The Percy Hedley Foundation – A registered charity recognised as leading the way in the provision of specialist, high quality and innovative services for disabled people. In over 65 years we have grown from supporting 12 children to more than 1000 disabled children, young people and adults, their families and friends.
The outcomes of this project includes a group of Service Users learning new skills about digitising old heritage films and photographs. Service Users edit restored digitised films along with enhancing and restoring archived photographs using multiple software.
We want to capture our predecessors’ original memories and stories before they leave us, or things get lost, deteriorate or get destroyed. This project is set out to catalogue, record and preserve historic material (including books, images, film, documents, objects etc) to best practice standards with a heritage specialist.
We will digitise some of this material for ease of access for future use and enable young people, their friends and families to understand the social and cultural development of disabled people in the North East of England.
A wider range of people will engage with Hedleys’ Heritage through the sharing of some of this material in a variety of ways, such as video links, newsletters, PR and podcasts, and a mobile exhibition to celebrate this project. The historic material will be identified, stored, and recorded in better condition and this project will enable the history of The Percy Hedley Foundation to be better interpreted and explained.
