Writing about childhoods in care

Posted on 15th October, 2012

Memories in Print keeps me very busy but, in my spare time (when I get any!), I work on researching children's homes. For many people who spent their childhoods in care, there are few records of their time there. Often people are left with no idea why they went into care; are hazy about the dates and end up with no photographs of themselves as children. While we cannot put this right, I am trying to set up an online directory of former children's homes so that people can at least find out some information about the homes they were in and I include, where it is possible, information about where they can access more details. The site is at www.childrenscottagehomes.org.uk.
