About Us

Home for Good is a project supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. It is hosted by Derbyshire Law Centre. The project worker is Ellen Taylor. The aim of the project is to explore the history and heritage of social housing in the three boroughs of Chesterfield, Bolsover and North Eastern Derbyshire through the contributions of residents. The project will collect oral histories, photographs, documents, written accounts, objects and more, and will gather these items together in travelling exhibitons which are touring the three boroughs throughout the life of the project. There will be a final exhibition at Chesterfield Museum in the spring of 2016 before the material is deposited at the Derbyshire County Council Records Office in Matlock. The legal timeline on the website sets the material collected in its legal context, showing the effect of legislative changes on residents’ lives.
