BBC Inside Out North East

BBC North East presenter Chris Jackson's report about Children North East's 120 year history working with poor children was broadcast this evening (see iplayer: - third item about 20 minutes in). He told the story of the organisation's origins working with street children through to setting up the first children's TB sanatorium in the country at Stannington near Morpeth, Northumberland. He interviewed people who movingly recalled having been treated there as children. Then right up to date with brief insights into our work today with children, families and young people. Thank you Chris, you have made a great programme. Thank you too to the staff and service users who took part.
