We have been finding out about the history of people with learning disabilities in the region.
We have a project group
and we meet to discuss the project and the information we’ve found out about.
The project group makes decisions about what
information we use, and
about the design ideas for the Timeline and the website.
People with learning disabilities often used to
live in long stay hospitals.
There were 3 hospitals in
the local region where people with learning disabilities from this area used to live.
which was in Sherborne.
Coldeast Hospital, which
was in Sarisbury Green near Southampton and Fareham.
Tatchbury Mount Hospital which was near Southampton.
We made a Timeline about the history of people with learning disabilities, and how things have changed over the years.
This has been made into an exhibition.
An exhibition is a display showing information and pictures.
When the Timeline
exhibition had been made, we
took it on tour around
the county of Dorset.
The Timeline will also be
on the website, on the Timeline page.
Keep checking back to
see when there’s more information online!
