Taking Hold of Our Heritage

Leicestershire Cares

2021

Taking Hold of our Heritage project gave the narrative power back to the care experienced young person so they could tell the stories they want heard about their lives. This heritage project worked with young people to investigate the complex nature of the identity of care leavers, producing an archive of artefacts including oral histories, photography and photovoice. The young people investigated the memories and experiences of Leicestershire’s leaving care community, by looking at themselves, but also visiting and interviewing and documenting care experience young people.
