Innovate Trust History Exhibition

Innovate Trust History

Innovate Trust has been supporting people since 1967 and to celebrate this amazing achievement and recognise the hard work, dedication and commitment of everyone involved with the charity over its history an exhibition has been created to chronicle the work of the pioneering student volunteers that helped establish supported living as we know it, and the trail blazing individuals supported by the charity that fought for their right to live in their own homes in the community rather than being forced to live in long stay institutions and hospitals.

With support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Innovate Trust spent a year reflecting on this history, researching documents and filming stories and establishing permanent records with local archives and museums to preserve this important history for future generations. Additionally, the people supported by the charity helped design, create and build a travelling History roadshow which is currently at Cardiff Story Museum in the Old Library in the Hayes, Cardiff City Centre. Cardiff Story Museum is the official museum responsible for preserving, sharing and researching the history of the city and county of Cardiff, the Capital City of Wales and Innovate Trust are very pleased to be working with the Museum to share this important story.

Don’t miss your chance to see the work of our volunteers and learn about the history of Innovate Trust, social care and the city of Cardiff. Entry to the museum to see the exhibition is free, and the museum is open to everyone seven days a week, 10am until 4pm, the Innovate Trust Heritage Exhibition will be featuring there until 03rd March 2019 before moving on to its next location, so pop down to the museum for a fun and interactive day learning about our history.
