Background to Switchboard's History Project

In 1999, Nottinghamshire Living History Archives won a National Lottery award to produce 90 local history projects. Switchboard successfully applied for the funding to carry out one of these projects.  The funding was not in cash: it covered expenses, loan of equipment and the cost of printing and photography.

The project has since developed many resources, most of  which are available for use during training events, exhibitions and conferences, for academic research.  Switchboard's finances have to be directed to maintaining its basic services, so we cannot provide these resources free - but where a charge is made, it will be at the lowest possible rate.  For a list of examples, go to the Project's Resources page.

The project is now part of the much larger Nottinghamshire's Rainbow Heritage LGBT history project and their work can be seen by clicking here
