Hedley's Heritage – visit from Hedley's College students

Hedley's Heritage is our brilliant Heritage Lottery Fund supported project to organise and share the archive of pictures, books and artefacts we've built up over the years – what do you mean you haven't heard of it? Well … here's a handy primer: https://www.facebook.com/notes/percy-hedley-foundation/hedleys-heritage-66-years-of-history-uncluttered/1769854006449234/At the heart of project is service user involvement, and giving our people the chance to explore our history whilst learning about what we have to do to protect our collection, and generally how things have changed for disabled people over the last couple of decades. Lots of the work is done by a group of our service users – there's a nice pic of them in that Note shared above.The archive lives (under increasingly controlled conditions!) at our base in Forest Hall and on Monday's we host workshops and visits there.We were recently joined for the afternoon by an enthusiastic group of Hedley's College students looking for photos's (and fashion inspiration?!) for their 1980's themed end-of-term disco: their tutor Hilary Anderson explains more. Thanks Hilary!If you're interested in coming along to the archive, or hosting a event or display, just PM us here – we'd love to take some of this stuff on the road!

Hedley’s Heritage is our brilliant Heritage Lottery Fund supported project to organise and share the archive of pictures, books and artefacts we’ve built up over the years.

At the heart of project is service user involvement, and giving our people the chance to explore our history whilst learning about what we have to do to protect our collection, and generally how things have changed for disabled people over the last couple of decades. Lots of the work is done by a group of our service users – there’s a nice pic of them in that Note shared above.

We were recently joined for the afternoon by an enthusiastic group of Hedley’s College students looking for photos (and fashion inspiration?!) for their 1980’s themed end-of-term disco: their tutor Hilary Anderson explains more. Thanks Hilary!
