About

Share your memories of parenting and childcare in the East End!

If you lived in Newham or Tower Hamlets as a child, brought up your children in the area or worked as a childcare professional, then get in touch! Tell us where you roamed as a child and who made your tea, how you chose to bring up your children and why. What kind of childcare did you use, if any, and what do you think about childcare in the East End today?

We are looking for people to record oral history interviews, which will be kept at Bishopsgate Library. The project will bring people of different generations together to discuss their experiences of childcare and create an exhibition and website.

Holding the Baby is funded by the Gilda Street Trust.
