Royal Sussex County Hospital: A People’s History from the 19th to the 21st CenturyBrighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust Oral History Project

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is pleased to be delivering the heritage and oral history provision of the final phase of this BSUH heritage project through Nimbus in Brighton until March 2020.

Oral History Volunteers wanted!

Would you like to learn how to record memories of the Royal Sussex County Hospital (BSUH)?

Want to contribute them to the final phase of a heritage project?

The historic Royal Sussex County Hospital is undergoing a massive redevelopment to provide top of the range, 21st century healthcare facilities for the people of Brighton & Hove and Sussex. For this to happen, many of the old buildings need to be replaced.

This project will collect memories and stories about the hospital, to capture its heritage and share the role it has played in the lives of Brighton & Hove residents, including staff, patients and the wider community.

We are seeking enthusiastic volunteers to get involved, who would like to record oral histories with hospital staff, patients, and visitors between until March 2020. We will provide training and support with experienced facilitators and project manager.

The oral history training takes place on 30-31st July in Brighton.

These oral histories will feed into an exhibition taking place in September 2019 at Jubilee Library and also feed into a new archive to share these memories and experiences in March 2020.

There will also be opportunities for further free training and activities over the next seven months with reminiscence training and object handling training in 2019.

Voices of volunteering – an oral history

The social care charity Royal Voluntary Service (previously WRVS) I used to work for has just created this interesting oral history project through their own archive. You can see more about the project here.

downloadVoices of Volunteering: 75 Years of Citizenship and Service is an Oral History project run by the Royal Voluntary Service and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. We are collecting Oral Histories from past and present volunteers helping to preserve their unique take on their service with the charity. These recordings will be made available to all through Royal Voluntary Service’s on-line catalogue, as well as forming the core of a new suite of educational resources for secondary school students.  These resources will focus on the contribution of volunteers to British society and help promote the ideals of citizenship.

Founded by Lady Reading in 1938, Royal Voluntary Service is the largest voluntary organisation in British history, which today helps older people stay active, independent and part of their communities. The collection of up to 80 oral histories will give a fantastic new insight into the work of WVS/WRVS volunteers and their impact on British history through unique and differing perspectives.

You can find out more about the project on our website http://www.royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk/about-us/our-history/voices-of-volunteering.

The Royal Voluntary Service Archive & Heritage Collection recently added fourteen Oral Histories, from the project, to its online http://catalogue.royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk/calmview/ search Voices of Volunteering.

We are also looking for volunteers to assist the Project Archivist as Heritage Champions, with collecting these fascinating stories; learning new skills and providing a continuing legacy for the project after its official end.
