Digging into our history: Introducing our archives blog
Our archives form an amazing collection of the less-trafficked but fundamental corners of our organisation. Tucked away in a converted warehouse in south London, the files - many of which you can browse online - contain a multitude of photographs, case histories, magazines, and photographs.
Later this week we'll kick off a collection of blog stories that explore and, in some cases, reanimate our history. We'll begin on Wednesday with the story of how our organisation came to exist.
The archives series will show that although the types of work we have done has changed since our earliest days, we have a 132-year history of supporting the most vulnerable children in the country. Our new archive blog aims to share some of these stories.
Thanks to our dedicated archivists, we have a rich, detailed collection of historic photographs and documents we can share.
In addition to focusing on our history, we'll also use our archives blog to offer perspective on contemporary times. Watch for stories related to our shops and our magazine, putting current milestones in some historical context.
We hope you enjoy these peeks into the past.
