Julie-Ann is working on the Explore York Past Caring Project, funded by Wellcome. This project is engaged in cataloguing health and Poor Law records stored by the York City Archives. These are from the York Poor Law Union and Workhouse, York Medical Officer of Health, Department of Health, and Department of Housing and Environmental Health. These archives date from the 1830s through to the early 2000s, and document changing approaches to the provision of healthcare and alleviation of destitution in York over two centuries.

All welcome. History Group members £1, non-members £3.
