Respected and Protected

Some of our archives are having another little journey south to be displayed as part of a new exhibition at the Central Family Court in London. The exhibition entitled 'Respected and Protected: The Rights of Children', focuses on these entitlements through the ages and how these have changed and adapted over time.

What happened to the twelve?

We’re catering to our American readers on the blog this week with another tale from Northfields, Massachusetts. The charity emigrated 12 boys to Dwight Lyman Moody’s Training Homes in 1883 with a view to their being prepared for ministerial or missionary work.

Manchester, 1870

Somehow we find ourselves in 2017 and celebrating yet another birthday for the Together Trust. The 4th of January saw us reach the grand old age of 147. In three years time we’ll hit 150 years and plans are already afoot to honour this momentous occasion. So let’s go back to the year it all began and explore Manchester as it used to be.
