Future Living Hertford supported 19 client-volunteers as they explored and shared the stories of women from Hertfordshire who were part of the Suffragette movement.

This project created one new staff post and saw volunteers take part in 1800 hours of heritage activity. This included training in research, presentation skills, workshop planning and the production of exhibitions and websites. They went on six off-site visits, including to the Houses of Parliament and Hertford Museum.

The positive impact of the project went beyond their expectation, with one volunteer saying, “this project taught me so much about myself, history and others.”

Future Living Hertford provide support for clients in recovery from addictions and who are survivors of domestic abuse. “The research carried out…has identified links with the plight of the Suffragettes and modern day abuse” said Sandra Conte, Future Living Hertford CEO as she opened their exhibition.
