Social care in Kingsbury...200 years ago

As well as looking at how social care was provided to the poor of Kingsbury Parish in the early 19th century, using examples of real people from original hand-written records now held at Brent Archives, this illustrated talk may help listeners to consider how attitudes to the poor have (or have not) changed since then.

Careful you don't give Butt ideas, Philip.

Dear Mike,

If Cllr. Butt cares to attend my talk, he might get some good ideas on social care.

Until the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834 was imposed by Parliament, Kingsbury's social care of the poor was relatively good, and very democratic, for those times.
