About the project

Using money raised by National Lottery players, The National Lottery Heritage Fund supports projects that connect people and communities with the UK’s heritage. Black Care Oral Histories Project is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to fund 18 months of research and community building. Our project facilitators, who are Black and Care Experienced, will spend time with our volunteers going out into the community. Spending time connecting with more of Britain's Black Care Experienced population to hear and record their stories to be archived at The University of Leicester's Oral History Archive- where they will live on forever. 

If you identify as Black and have experience of the care system we would love to meet you for a coffee, invite you to some of our free events and possibly hear your stories. Please get in touch with Ty'rone via email ty' or fill out this form here and we will contact you. 

If you believe in this project and would like to support it as a volunteer then we'd love to hear from you. Please email or fill out this simple online application here.

"The National Lottery Heritage Fund is the largest funder for the UK’s heritage. Using money raised by National Lottery players we support projects that connect people and communities to heritage. Our vision is for heritage to be valued, cared for and sustained for everyone, now and in the future. From historic buildings, our industrial legacy and the natural environment, to collections, traditions, stories and more. Heritage can be anything from the past that people value and want to pass on to future generations. We believe in the power of heritage to ignite the imagination, offer joy and inspiration, and to build pride in place and connection to the past."
