Today, we’re starting a special series called ‘Resilience - A Life In Care’. It’s part of our Oral Project, in which we capture and share the incredible experiences of the Windrush Generation - and their descendants.  Tony Simpson was born in 1961 to a Jamaiican mother in a Salvation Army ‘mother and baby home’. He would then go on to spend the next 16 years of his life in Barnardo’s care. Over 6 episodes Tony will retrace his steps by visiting the places and institutions he was born and raised in.  He will also share his many triumphs – including meeting Royalty, Nelson Mandela and some of the world’s leading figures in business and beyond. Don't forget to rate, review and subscribe.  For more information about the project, and to learn more about Tony, please visit the Oral History Project website at www.barnardos.org.uk/oralhistory.
A short teaser about the story of former Barnardo's boy Tony Simpson, which we'll share, in full, in upcoming episodes.
The Barnardo’s Oral History project is about capturing and sharing the incredible experiences of the post-war African and Caribbean communities in Britain, often referred to as the Windrush Generation. Our first podcast episode in the series - released on Windrush Day 2020 (June 22) - focuses on the story of Barnardo’s Vice President Baroness Floella Benjamin. It also features a short teaser of the story of former Barnardo's boy Tony Simpson, which we'll explore, in detail, over the coming months.  Floella was interviewed by Ola, who is supported by our Youthbuild Academy in Lewisham.
