Time & Talents was set up in 1887 by ‘women of education and leisure’ who were concerned about the huge gap between rich and poor, and growing disadvantage in the local docks as a consequence of rapid industrialisation. They started, of course, in a time before the NHS and the welfare state. Members of the Settlement Movement, of which T&T remains a key member, went on to be the architects of social work and the welfare state. 130 years later, as we see a social system increasingly under strain, we feel that our long experience, and model of mutual support is more important than ever.
