This case study is the result of a partnership between the Parliamentary Archives, Parliamentary Outreach and Tyne and Wear Archives. It is part of the Connecting with Communities project which was launched in July 2009.
The Communities project explores the impact of Parliament on local communities and investigates how people have influenced Parliament. We do this by researching material held in the Parliamentary Archives at Westminster, as well as records held locally by regional archives.
This project looks at the improvement of public health in Sunderland during the nineteenth century.
