Opening in November at The Foundling Museum:

So That They May Be Usefull to Themselves
The Foundling Museum, London, 15 November 2016 — 7 May 2017

This display in the Introductory Gallery explores the Foundling Hospital’s work with disabled children. The Foundling Hospital was ground-breaking in its approach to access, as shown by the education and care it gave to disabled children in its custody. In some cases this led to lifelong support, even into old age. Curated by the Museum’s volunteers, this in-focus display explores their treatment of disability at the Foundling Hospital in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, alongside stories of former pupils.
