Public engagement project
Brittle Bone Society archives project
This project aims to catalogue the extensive archive of the Society.
The Brittle Bone Society is a national charity founded in Dundee in 1968. The Society assists people living with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or brittle bones, which affects approximately 5000 individuals in the UK. This project, funded by the Wellcome Trust, aims to catalogue the extensive archive of the Society and make the collection as accessible as possible to the public. This will be supplemented by oral history interviews with people involved with the Society, ensuring their voices are preserved for future generations. The project runs for twelve months from October 2021.
