Extent Over 2000 files
Conditions of access All records of the F.W.A. which are less than 60 years old, with the exception of annual reports and other publications, are closed to public consultation unless written permission for access is obtained from the Director of the Family Welfare Association.
Archival history The main part of the records of the C.O.S. and F.W.A. were deposited in the Greater London Record Office in 1969 and 1970 by the Central Office of the F.W.A. and by the Area Offices of Areas 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7. At that time it was reported that Area 2 had destroyed its older records and that Area 3 as a new office had no records. The records of Central Office fall into three main categories - the minute books of the council and its committees, annual reports of the council and district committees bound into annual volumes, and the records of the Enquiry Department, renamed the Information Department in 1946, which were deposited separately by Central Office in 1983. These consist mainly of files of information on other charities.
A small number of files also survive from the Secretary's Office, the Registration Department and the Provincial Secretary. The archives of Central Office include records of other charities or organisations connected with the C.O.S. or F.W.A., some of which were subsequently administered by the F.W.A. The F.W.A. copies of its own publications have been deposited at the National Institute for Social Work Training, Mary Ward House, Tavistock Place, London. The F.W.A. Library has been deposited in the Goldsmiths' Library, University of London Library.

Administrative history:
The Society for Organising Charitable Relief and Repressing Mendicity was founded in 1869. It was much more commonly known by its short title of the Charity Organisation Society or simply as the C.O.S. Its objects as defined in the eighth annual report published in 1877 were:
"1 To bring into harmonious co-operation with each other and with the Poor-Law authorities the various charitable agencies and individuals in the district, and thus effectually to check the evils of 'overlapping' relief caused by simultaneous but independent action.
2 To investigate thoroughly the cases of all applicants for charitable relief, whether they are referred to the offices for inquiry and report, or whether they apply of their own accord.
3 To place gratuitously at the disposal of all charitable agencies and private persons the investigating machinery of the Committees of the Society, and to send to person having a legitimate interest in cases full reports of the results of the investigations made.
4 To obtain from the proper charities, or from charitable individuals, suitable and adequate relief for deserving cases.
5 To assist from its own funds, and as far as possible in the form of loans, all suitable cases for which adequate assistance cannot be obtained from other sources.
6 To repress mendicity by the above means, by the gratuitous distribution of Investigation Tickets, and by the prosecution of imposters.
7 To afford to the public at large information regarding the objects and mode of working of existing charities.
8 To promote, as far as possible, the general welfare of the poor by means of social and sanitary reforms, and by the inculcation of habits of providence and self-dependence".
Its formation arose out of concern over the mass of overlapping and often illorganised charities in London, manydistributing indiscriminate relief, which, it was feared, led to pauperisation and a waste of resources.
The founders of the C.O.S. sought to promote a more scientific approach to charity based on the principle that in individual cases relief should be given only after a thorough investigation of the applicant's circumstances and character and that relief should be adequate, in other words sufficient to prevent him becoming a pauper.
The society was to be a federation of district committees working on a local level in all parts of London. The first district committee was formed in St Marylebone in October 1869. By March 1871 all the poor law unions in the Metropolitan Poor Law Area had one or more C.O.S. district committees except for the City of London and Woolwich. In 1900 there were about forty district committees.
The district committees tried to put the ideas of the C.O.S. into effect at the local level by promoting co-operation between local churchmen and charities and the boards of guardians whom they hoped would be represented on the C.O.S. committees. If applicants seeking relief were directed to the district office of the C.O.S., their circumstances would be carefully investigated and enquiries would be made as to whether they were already in receipt of any form of poor relief or charitable assistance. If considered suitable, they would be directed to some other charity for the appropriate form of relief. If considered undeserving, they would be left to the mercies of the Poor Law. In practice the C.O.S. district committees became involved in giving relief themselves as well as referring cases elsewhere. In time the C.O.S. Central Office became trustee of certain pension funds which were distributed by the district committees.
The district committees sent representatives to the C.O.S. Council at Central Office. The functions of the Council were to supervise, strengthen and consolidate the work of the district committees and to take into consideration all questions of principle and matters relating to the work of the society generally. The Council tried to bring into systematic co-operation the larger Metropolitan institutions and societies. It helped to form similar societies elsewhere and entered into correspondence with them. It tried to influence government policy through its numerous publications and by the reports it produced on such subjects as the feeding of school children, the organisation of hospitals in the Metropolis, and the treatment of the feebleminded. In the 1890s it put pressure on the government to form a Central Hospital Board for London. This proposal was unsuccessful, but in 1897 the Prince of Wales founded what was to become King Edward's Hospital Fund for London which worked towards the rationalisation and greater efficiency of hospital services in London. Of the eighteen members of the 1905 Royal Commission on the Poor Law, six, including C.S. Loch, were leaders of the C.O.S. Another five were active C.O.S. sympathisers.
The Council quickly delegated many of its functions to a series of committees. The Administrative Committee was set up in 1870 to carry on all the business of the Society not specially reserved to the Council and to exercise the necessary supervision over its officers. It prepared the budget and could pass orders with regard to expenditure authorised in the budget. The Administrative Committee elected annually a number of permanent sub-committees. The more important of the sub-committees were the Districts Sub-Committee 1876-1946, the Medical Advisory Sub-Committee 1883-1945, the Emigration Sub-Committee 1886-1943, the Thrift and Savings Sub-Committee 1896-1921, the Provincial (later the Associated Societies) Sub-Committee 1892-1939 and the Registration Sub-Committee 1911-1944. It also appointed other Sub-Committees from its own members. In 1932 these were the Finance Sub-Committee, Propaganda Sub-Committee, Training Sub-Committee, and Enquiry Sub-Committee. Both the Council and the Administrative Committee set up special ad hoc sub-committees to investigate particular problems. Some of these developed into permanent committees either elected or nominated.
The administrative structure of the C.O.S. is noteworthy both for the number of its committees and their fluidity, especially in the 1870s, 1880s, and 1940s. Committees frequently changed name and changed type. Not all the minute books have survived. Copies of reports produced by special committees can frequently be found contained in the minutebooks of the Council or Administrative Committee for the period 1880-1914. For a detailed list of these, see Class H Publications. Copies of reports may also be located in the F.W.A. Library deposited in the Goldsmiths' Library, University of London Library.
In this century the C.O.S. has played a major role in pioneering the proper training of social workers and in the development of social work as a profession. The C.O.S. was responsible for the appointment of the first hospital almoner at the Royal Free Hospital in 1895. The Council appointed a Committee on Training in May 1897 and arranged a series of lectures which district secretaries on probation were expected to attend. In 1903 the School of Sociology was opened with E. J. Urwick as lecturer and tutor for the training of social workers. Though an offshoot of the C.O.S., it was an independent body, and in 1912 decided to merge with the London School of Economics. In 1915 the C.O.S. began its own twelve month course of training in social work in conjunction with Bedford College. The C.O.S. also provided practical experience for students from other courses. As a result, the work of the district offices became increasingly dominated by salaried professional social workers and the role of the volunteer decreased in importance.
The C.O.S. also played an important part in the setting up of Citizens Advice Bureaux. The idea of Citizens Advice Bureaux was developed in response to the numbers of people seeking guidance and advice during the Munich Crises in 1938. The London Council of Social Service and the C.O.S. jointly established some eighty Citizens Advice Bureaux in London by the time of the outbreak of war in 1939. Each bureau was autonomous with a local management committee with a national central committee. The C.O.S. was responsible for the Citizens Advice Bureaux in Inner London, while the London Council of Social Service took responsibility for outer London. The bureaux proved to be so useful that the service was continued after the end of the war.
In 1946 the C.O.S. was renamed the Family Welfare Association to reflect its changed role and to emphasise its principle function as a family casework agency. A financial crisis caused a major re-organisation of the district committees in 1949-50. The number of district offices, already considerably reduced by amalgamations since the 1920s, was drastically curtailed by amalgamation of the district committees to form nine Areas. Continued financial problems led to the reduction in number of the Areas to six by 1965.
The central organisation of the F.W.A. was also re-organised in 1950 to simplify administration and to make the policy making bodies more representative. The Council and Administrative Committee were replaced by the Administrative Council to which were subordinated two main committees, the General Purposes Committee and the Finance Committee. Other committees dealt with special aspects of F.W.A. work, e.g., Old Peoples Homes and Citizens Advice Bureaux, and particular functions, e.g., Information, and Press and Publicity. The central administration of the F.W.A. still left much to be desired and in the late 1950s Muriel Cunliffe of the University of British Columbia School of Social Work was commissioned to carry out a full scale review of the F.W.A. The Cunliffe report was presented in 1960 and most of its recommendations were implemented. The Secretary was replaced as principal officer by the Director who could delegate departmental responsibility. Central Office was divided into five main departments - Accountancy, Appeals and Public Relations, Casework, Citizens Advice Bureaux and Information, each with its Chief Officer and Advisory Committee.

Contents:
The records of the Area Offices include minute books of former district committees which were amalgamated to form the areas. Minute books of some district committees were deposited by Central Office, but these have been listed with the records of the Area into which the district committee was absorbed. For many district committees no minute books survive, but copies of their annual reports can be found in the annual volumes of reports bound together by Central. Investigation on individual cases was carried out by the district offices, subsequently area offices, and their records do include casepapers. Casepapers were normally destroyed after a case was closed for twenty years. Consequently very few casepapers survive for cases closed before the 1940s, though it was not uncommon for a case to be open for thirty years or more. Area 1 Office (Hammersmith and Fulham) is the only office to have preserved many case records dating from before 1940. Examples of typical cases omitting names were published in the annual reports of the district committees.

For Districts Sub-Committee agendas Sep 1945-Feb 1946 see A/FWA/C/A/52/001/01

Administrative history:
The Districts Sub-Committee was appointed on 17 January 1876 to receive reports from district committees and Organising and Assistant Organising Secretaries and to give ordinary instructions regarding District Committee work. Difficult cases were referred to the District Sub-Committee for discussion. The Sub-Committee appointed district secretaries, assistant secretaries and other staff to the district offices. In the 20th Century it became increasingly engaged in the administration of special funds for pensions and other kinds of relief. In 1946 it was replaced by the Establishment Sub-Committee and the Cases Sub-Committee. The Establishment Sub-Committee had responsibility for staff and accommodation, including staff at Central Office, and supervised the work of the district committees. In 1950 the Establishment Sub-Committee was abolished and its functions were transferred to the newly formed General Purposes Committee (see A/FWA/C/A9/1-2). The Cases Sub-Committee was responsible for grants to particular cases from the special funds administered by the F.W.A.

ANNUAL REPORTS  A/FWA/C/B  [n.d.]

Archival history:
Although most volumes have C.O.S. Library labels and catalogue marks, a few originally belonged to the Secretary, the Committee Room or Mr Pringle. Other duplicate copies originally belonged to the Hackney Committee and have been listed with the records of that committee

Contents:
There are two series of annual reports. The first consists of the annual reports of the Council, including reports of the Emigration Sub-Committee, the Medical Advisory Sub-Committee, the Provincial Sub-Committee, the Registration Sub-Committee and the Thrift and Savings Sub-Committee. The district committees of the C.O.S. published their own annual reports. These were collected together by Central Office and bound up in annual volumes together with a copy of the annual report of Council. Some copies were retained at Central Office while others were offered for sale. This second series was labelled with the year covered by the report before deposit in the Greater London Record Office.

SECRETARY/DIRECTOR  A/FWA/C/C  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
The Secretary was the principal officer of the Charity Organisation Society. The first secretary was Charles B. P. Bosanquet 1870-1875. In 1875 he was succeeded by C. S. Loch, who dominated the C.O.S. until the breakdown of his health in 1913 followed by his retirement in 1914. Subsequent secretaries were the Revd. J. C. Pringle 1914-1919, H. L. Woollcombe 1919-1923, M.W. Fox-Strangways 1923-1925 (acting secretary), Revd. J.C. Pringle 1925-1936 and B. E. Astbury 1936-1956. In 1960 the post of Secretary was replaced by that of Director.

Contents:
Although the Secretary was involved in all aspects of the work of Central Office, very few records relating specifically to the Secretary appear to have survived. The few correspondence files listed below were deposited on 7 November 1983 (Acc 1898) with the files of the Enquiry Department.

ENQUIRY DEPARTMENT  A/FWA/C/D  [n.d.]

Archival history:
The Enquiry Department files were given case numbers in chronological order from 1 to c40000. In about the 1930s a new series of numbering was introduced in which one element was the number of the year preceeded by a running number, e.g., 6/36. Some of the older files which still existed at this date were given a new case number according to this system.
The files on individuals were originally part of the main series of files on charities. Sometime in the 1930s they appear to have been separated from the main series to form a separate series arranged alphabetically, rather than by case number.
Between 1932 and 1934 document files and key files were compiled for certain charities. Significant papers were abstracted from the general files, put into chronological order and numbered to form the document file. A report was produced summarising and analysing this evidence to form the key file.
Most of the files were microfilmed in the 1970s. In preparation for filming, the papers were removed from their tags and placed in new file covers. Some duplicates and flimsies were weeded. In certain cases files were given new volume numbers. The microfilms have been deposited in the Greater London Record Office, but are not generally available because of the confidential nature of the material filmed.

Administrative history:
The Enquiry Department of Central Office was entrusted with the task of inquiring into fraudulent charities and exposing and, on occasion, prosecuting promoters of bogus charities and writers of begging letters. The work was supervised by the Administrative Committee who delegated this function to the Supervision Sub-Committee 1874-1875, succeeded by the Enquiry Supervision Sub-Committee 1875-1876, renamed the Mendicity Sub-Committee in 1876 and again renamed the Enquiry Sub-Committee in 1878. In 1884 the Administrative Committee resumed direct supervision of enquiry work until a new Enquiry Sub-Committee was formed in 1903.
The Charity Commission established in 1853 was only concerned with the proper management of endowed charities. A great number of voluntary charities had been founded in the 19th Century which were subject to very little legal control or supervision. The C.O.S. was concerned that charitable donations were going to largely worthless charities whose real objects were the financial gain and public reputation of the founder, to the loss of reputable charities. It was also unhappy about the many small illorganised charities with very similar objectives. The purpose of the Enquiry Department was to direct charitable giving away from unscrupulous imposters and almost worthless charities to philanthropic organisations not only of unimpeachable financial rectitude but with what the C.O.S. considered the most effective methods and most worthwhile objectives. For instance, the C.O.S. disapproved of voting charities, missions which distributed indiscriminate relief, charities run by an individual or a family without the backing of a committee, charities which failed to publish annual reports and lists of subscribers and donations, homes for children, fallen women or old people which investigation showed to be badly run, and the proliferation of small special hospitals.
The C.O.S. published a cautionary card listing notorious writers of begging letters and suspect charities which it distributed to its subscribers. It also produced reports on individual charities which were sent to anyone requesting information. For examples of the cautionary card, see A/FWA/C/A/03/035, p.284 [1898], A/FWA/C/A/03/043/01, p.248 1907, A/FWA/C/A/03/049/01, p.78 1913, and A/FWA/C/D/02/001, 1936-1947.
The work of the Enquiry Department in the 1930s has been described by B. E. Astbury, later Secretary to the Family Welfare Association, in an article in Social Work for January 1956 (reference A/FWA/HF/A/09/019. Largely as a result of recommendations made by the C.O.S., the House to House Collection Act was passed in 1939 "requiring every charitable organisation making such collections to obtain a police permit, to satisfy the authorities that the objects were not only charitable but, so far as could be ascertained, a necessary activity. Accounts showing the amount collected and the amounts spent on the objects of the charity had to be submitted, with the result that, overnight, hundreds of questionable charities were put out of business".
The Enquiry Department maintained a series of files on charities. Those that survive, only a small proportion of those that existed originally, were deposited in the Great London Record Office on 7 November 1983 (Acc.1898). The files contain copies of annual reports and appeal literature produced by the charity, letters from individuals inquiring into the bona fides of the charity and copies of the C.O.S. report on the charity. Sometimes they contain reports of a visit by a C.O.S. agent to a hospital, orphanage or other institution. They may include newspaper cuttings and correspondence and accounts of interviews with people concerned about the way in which a particular charity functioned.

Bibliography: The C.O.S. began publishing the Annual Charities Register and Digest in 1882 as a guide to charities. The Annual Charities Digest is still published by the Information Department of the Family Welfare Association. Copies are available in the Greater London History Library.

FILES ON INDIVIDUALS  A/FWA/C/D/297-345  [n.d.]

Conditions of access: FILES ON INDIVIDUALS ARE CLOSED TO CONSULTATION. Permission for access may be obtained from the Director of the Family Welfare Association.

Archival history:
The files on individuals originally formed part of the main series of Enquiry Department files on charities and were numbered in the same series. In the 1930s the files on individuals seem to have been separated from the main series and arranged alphabetically.

Arrangement: The files are listed in three alphabetical sequences; the first group consists of miscellaneous files on individuals; the two other groups consist of two surviving box files from an alphabetical series labelled 'Aliases and Begging Letters'.


Administrative history:
Most of the files on individuals relate to the writers of begging letters or to the promoters of spurious charitable appeals. Some of the files on individuals do, however, relate to charitable appeals which were entirely bona fide. The cases of people writing begging letters were investigated by the C.O.S. district committee for the area in which they were living, who would assist them if they considered they were deserving of help. Only files on notorious writers of begging letters were retained by the Central Enquiry Department.

FILES ON INDIVIDUALS: FILES LABELLED 'ALIASES AND BEGGING LETTERS PA TO S'  A/FWA/C/D/352-361  [n.d.]

Conditions of access: FILES ON INDIVIDUALS ARE CLOSED TO CONSULTATION. Permission for access may be obtained from the Director of the Family Welfare Association.

Archival history:
The files on individuals originally formed part of the main series of Enquiry Department files on charities and were numbered in the same series. In the 1930s the files on individuals seem to have been separated from the main series and arranged alphabetically.

Arrangement: The files are listed in three alphabetical sequences; the first group consists of miscellaneous files on individuals; the two other groups consist of two surviving box files from an alphabetical series labelled 'Aliases and Begging Letters'.


Administrative history:
Most of the files on individuals relate to the writers of begging letters or to the promoters of spurious charitable appeals. Some of the files on individuals do, however, relate to charitable appeals which were entirely bona fide. The cases of people writing begging letters were investigated by the C.O.S. district committee for the area in which they were living, who would assist them if they considered they were deserving of help. Only files on notorious writers of begging letters were retained by the Central Enquiry Department.

REGISTRATION DEPARTMENT  A/FWA/C/E  [n.d.]

Archival history:
Very few records of the Registration Department survive. The remaining files were deposited in the Greater London Record Office in November 1983 (Acc 1898) with the records of the Enquiry Department.


Related information: For minutes of the Conference of Registrars, the Provisional Registration Committee, and the Registration Sub-Committee see A/FWA/C/A/33/01-04. For annual reports 1910-1925 see A/FWA/C/B/01/008-010.

Administrative history:
The object of mutual registration of assistance was the exchange of information between charities, hospitals, and poor law authorities to prevent overlapping of cases. The first district registry was established by Chelsea C.O.S. in 1904. By 1907 there were six district registries in London. The Administrative Council of the C.O.S. authorised the establishment of a Central Registry at Central Office in 1909. The first meeting of the conference of Honorary Registrars was held on 18 February 1909. In February 1911 the C.O.S. Provisional Registration Committee was formed to replace, though not to supersede completely the Conference of Registrars. This in turn was replaced by the Registration Sub-Committee in August 1915. By February 1911 there were 29 District Registries working in close cooperation with C.O.S. Some 1,150 agencies were involved - Boards of Guardians, churches, missions, charitable societies, School Care Committees, and health societies. They sent to the district registries weekly or monthly lists of cases assisted. When it was found that two or more societies knew the same family, both were notified in the hope that they would be able to cooperate. The Central Registry received reports from 58 hospitals and other general organisations. On the abolition of the Boards of Guardians in 1930 and the transfer of their responsibilities to the L.C.C., at first the L.C.C. Public Assistance Committee favoured cooperation with voluntary agencies and paid a grant to the C.O.S. in respect of the Mutual Registration of Assistance in selected areas. A Labour majority on the L.C.C. reversed this policy in 1934 and on 31 March 1935 terminated cooperation in the registration of assistance.
The first Secretary of the Registration Committee, D. Radford Sharpe, was also Head of the Registration Department at Central Office. He resigned in August 1917 and was replaced by the Hon. Gertrude Lubbock.

PROVINCIAL SECRETARY  A/FWA/C/F  [n.d.]

Archival history:
Few of the Provincial Secretary's files have survived. Those that have were deposited in the Greater London Record Office with the files of the Enquiry Department in November 1963 (Acc 1898).

Administrative history:
By 1896 there were at least 70 Charity Organisation Societies in existence. The London C.O.S. had invented the name and set the example but the provincial societies had an extreme variety in aims, principles and methods of work. In 1892 the London C.O.S. established a Provincial Sub-Committee to correspond with associated societies in the provinces, to collect copies of their annual reports and other information concerning them and to give advice. Visits to local societies by London members were arranged and members of provincial societies visited London to gain experience of the London C.O.S. The first travelling secretary was appointed in 1907. The travelling secretaries visited and strengthened provincial charity organisation societies, in certain circumstances taking charge of an office for a time, for instance to assist in starting a new society or to initiate reforms in an older society or to carry on the work in an emergency.

NATIONAL COUNCIL OF FAMILY CASE-WORK AGENCIES  A/FWA/C/G/16  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
In February 1946 the Provisional National Council of the Family Welfare Association was formed. In October 1948 this became a separate organisation, the National Council of Family Case-Work Agencies, though the administrative work of the Council was carried out by the FWA. The Council was wound up in May 1961 because the FWA was unable to continue to provide a secretariat. It was also felt that some of the objects of the Council coincided with those of the Association of General and Family Case-Workers.

Archival history:
The Annual Reports have been deposited in the Greater London Record Office (see Class B of this List). The other series of C.O.S. publications have been deposited in the Library of the National Institute for Social Work Training, Mary Ward House, Tavistock Place, London, WC1. The remainder of the C.O.S. Library has been deposited in the Goldsmiths' Library, University of London Library. This includes copies of many of the Special Reports published by the C.O.S. Copies of many special reports, memoranda, papers read at Council meetings, Charity Organisation Papers and C.O.S. Occasional Papers are contained in the minute books of the Council and Administrative Committee from about 1888 onwards.

Administrative history:
The C.O.S. was very active in publishing. Besides the Annual Reports of the Council and district committees, it published a series of periodicals, the Charity Organisation Reporter 1872-1884, the Charity Organisation Review from 1885, the Charity Organisation Quarterly and Social Work. From 1882 it published the Annual Charities Register and Digest. The introduction How to Help Cases of Distress first appeared separately in 1883 and has continued as The Prevention and Relief of Distress and more recently as Guide to the Social Services. The C.O.S. also published a series of Charity Organisation Papers and four series of C.O.S. Occasional Papers.

Bibliography: For more information about C.O.S. publications see C.L. Mowat The Charity Organisation Society 1869-1913 p.178 and Madeline Rooff A Hundred Years of Family Welfare p 367.

GRANTS DEPARTMENT: GRANTS COMMITTEE  A/FWA/C/J  [n.d.]

Conditions of access: All unpublished records of the Family Welfare Association are closed to public access for 60 years.

Archival history:
These records were deposited in the Greater London Record Office on 28 November 1991 (Acc 2991). Although some volumes and documents are closely related to records included in the main deposit of the archives of the Family Welfare Association (formerly known as the Charity Organisation Society), particularly the minutes of the Grants Committee 1946-1964 (ref. A/FWA/C/A/53/001-006 and records of Charities associated with the Family Welfare Association (ref. A/FWA/C/G/01-06), as this deposit forms a coherent group originating from the Grants Department, it has been decided to keep it together and to catalogue it as Class J.


Related information: For minute books of the Grants Committee (which was before July 1950 known as the Cases Sub-Committee) for 1946-1965 see A/FWA/C/A/53/001-006 and A/FWA/C/A/54/001-002 For agenda books 1950-1967 see A/FWA/C/A/55/001-007. For a register of trust funds administered by the Grants Committee see A/FWA/C/A/56/002/01.

Administrative history:
In October 1969 the terms of reference of the Grants Committee were defined as follows (A/FWA/C/J/01/001)
1. a) To consider all applications for grants and pensions from funds under the control of the Council and to have power to authorise grants from such funds not exceeding £250 in any 12 months on any individual case, the initial grant not to exceed £200.
b) To make recommendations when required to trustees of funds not controlled by the Council.
c) To make recommendations to the Executive Committee, through the Head of the Case-Work Department, on all cases where authority is required for grants exceeding the amounts specified in (a) and in cases where a pension is awarded for the first time.
d) To review from time to time the policy regarding the administration of the trusts concerned and to make recommendations through the Head of the Casework Department to the Executive Committee as they think necessary.

GRANTS DEPARTMENT: CHARITIES ADMINISTERED BY THE FAMILY WELFARE ASSOCIATION  A/FWA/C/J  [n.d.]

BENEVOLENT SOCIETY OF ST PATRICK  A/FWA/C/J/06  [n.d.]


Related information: Other records of the Society consisting mainly of published annual "Lists" 1814-1970 have also been deposited in the Greater London Record office (see Acc 2895). They include a brief history of the Society 1783-1929 (ref. Acc 2895/16).

Administrative history:
The Benevolent Society of St Patrick was established in 1783 to provide charitable relief to poor and distressed Irish people living in and around London. It made no religious or political distinctions in its provision of relief. In 1820 the Society opened its own non-denominational schools in Stamford Street, Lambeth. When these closed in 1921, the Society reviewed its activities and started to give grants to young Irish men and women "of good conduct and industry" and to elderly Irish people. In addition grants were given towards hospital beds. After 1948 grants were regularly given to assist the unemployed and to Irish families in need.

Contents:
The archives listed below were contained in a small deed box and had formerly been in the possession of the Secretary to the Society, Major Vivian James Forbes-Smith. Most date from 1928-1955 during his period of office, but some are earlier dating back to 1790. They also include a few records of the Irish Peasantry Society, founded c.1824, and closely associated with the Benevolent Society of St Patrick.

IRISH PEASANTRY SOCIETY  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The Society was established in about 1824 as the Society for Improving the Condition of the Irish Peasantry. It originated in the efforts of noblemen and gentlemen connected with Ireland to mitigate severe distress among the peasantry at that time. After its primary object has been attained, a substantial sum was received from subscriptions collected in India. The Society was renamed the Irish Peasantry Society and placed on a more permanent footing. Grants were made annually to societies "for the encouragement of the Irish Peasantry in cleanliness and cottage husbandry and loan societies" (1842). Rules approved in 1864 stipulated that grants should only be paid to societies with a substantial local subscription list. Grants could also be made for the promotion of "Industrial Pursuits of a character such as may be adapted to the Peasantry of the locality...special prominence being given to those which may be calculated to afford suitable female employment."
From 1830 all meetings of the Irish Peasantry Society were held in the offices of the Benevolent Society of St Patrick. In 1833 it was resolved that the members of the Sub-Committee of the Benevolent Society of St Patrick should be members of the Committee of the Irish Peasantry Society. By the 1930s the affairs of both charities were being managed by Major Forbes-Smith from 18 Charing Cross Road.

BISHOP ANDREWES' CHARITY  A/FWA/C/J/07  [n.d.]

Archival history:
Some of the records of the Charity were lost when the offices of Messrs. Finch & Jennings, formerly Clerks to the Charity, were destroyed by enemy action on 10 May 1941. Fortunately, records kept in the firm's strongroom were undamaged. In 1943 it was decided to offer a box containing "old deeds and documents" relating to the Suffolk estate on loan to the British Records Association Records Preservation Section for transfer to the appropriate muniment room for East Suffolk.

Administrative history:
By his will dated 22 September 1626 Lancelot Andrewes, Bishop of Winchester, left £2,000 to trustees to buy land to provide an annual income to be used in giving relief to aged and impotent persons, poor fatherless children, poor aged widows and poor prisoners. An estate was duly purchased in the parishes of Somersham, Elmsett and Offton in Suffolk. Originally the trustees each individually distributed the income to needy person falling within the above categories.
In 1887 a Charity Commission scheme was obtained which directed that a quarter of the annual income should be paid to a discharged prisoners aid society. From 1920 onwards, the Charity Organisation Society nominated applicants for assistance, who received pensions rather than single payments, and who were supervised by the C.O.S.

OVERMAN AND DE BOSSET PENSION CHARITY  A/FWA/C/J/11  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
In 1771 Alice Shaw Overman established almshouses for eight poor women in Montague Close, near St Saviour's Church, in Southwark. She endowed them, with an annual rent charge of £130 derived from property in Montague Close to maintain the almshouses and to provide the almswomen with a pension. The almshouses were sold in 1882 for £2,000. The Charity Commission approved a new scheme for the Charity on 6 October 1885 which provided for the granting of pensions to poor women. A further scheme dated 1 October 1990 renamed the Charity the Overman and De Bosset Relief-in-Need Charity and nominated the Family Welfare Association as trustee.

MRS ESTHER DOE'S ALMSHOUSE CHARITY  A/FWA/C/J/16  [n.d.]


Related information: See also A/FWA/C/K/01.

Administrative history:
In 1868 Esther Doe, widow of Joseph Bolton Doe of Streatham, Surrey, gave to trustees a piece of land in Chase Lane, Winchmore Hill, Edmonton, on which they were to build almshouses for poor, but respectable unmarried women aged at least 55 years. They were to be of the Protestant faith and to have an income of between £10 and £20 a year. Preference was given to women from Bethnal Green, Whitechapel and Streatham. As an endowment for the charity she gave the trustees nos 10-11 Christchurch Road, Streatham (later nos 21 and 23), and Nos 4, 5, and 6 Mount Etna, Mile End Road, Stepney (later nos 250, 252 and 254 Mile End Road). The Almshouses were known as Doe's Memorial Almshouses or the Memorial Terrace.
In her will proved in 1872 she created a further charity to pay annuities of £10 to poor unmarried women. This was managed by the same trustees.

CASE PAPERS  A/FWA/HF/B/02-08  [n.d.]

Conditions of access: These case papers may only be consulted if written permission is obtained from the Director of the Family Welfare Association. Once this permission has been obtained, detailed lists of the case papers can be made available before consulting the records.

Archival history:
After the amalgamation of the Chelsea and Fulham and Hammersmith Committees at the end of 1949 to form Area 1, the letters CF and H were added to all new case numbers and retrospectively to old files to distinguish Hammersmith cases from Chelsea and Fulham cases. However, whereas before 1950 there were two separate series of case files, from 1950 onwards there is only one series. In the 1940s the Hammersmith Committee had distinguished between North Hammersmith and South Hammersmith cases. The former had the prefix 'N' and a blue file cover, while the latter had the prefix 'S' and a pink file cover. The practice of using different coloured file covers for each district was continued after 1949.

Appraisal information: The C.O.S./F.W.A. normally destroyed case papers after twenty years. More files have survived from Area 1 than from any other office. However, case files were weeded in 1961-1962 and many files with no action since 1949 were destroyed.


Arrangement: These case papers have been selected for preservation and arranged and listed by Area 1 Office. They are arranged in order of case number, which was assigned in chronological order when the case was opened by the Hammersmith or Fulham Committee.


Contents:
Some files contain earlier casepapers transferred from another C.O.S. or F.W.A. district committee when the client moved to Hammersmith or Fulham. Occasionally files contain earlier casepapers produced by the Hammersmith or the Fulham Committee transferred when a case was reopened and assigned a new reference number after a lapse of some years.

AREA 4 - CAMDEN, ISLINGTON, HACKNEY, CITY AND TOWER HAMLETS  A/FWA/TH  [n.d.]

Archival history:
The records of Area 4 have been deposited partly by the Area 4 office (Ac.70.45) and partly by Central Office. Those records deposited by Central have been distinguished as such in the list.

Administrative history:
In the re-organisation of 1949-1950 the North and South Islington Committees and the North and South St Pancras Committees were combined to form Area 3, but with separate offices for Islington at 17 Compton Terrace, N1 and St Pancras at 80 Charrington Street, NW1. Area 4 comprised Holborn, Finsbury, City, Stepney and Poplar with offices at 59 Myddelton Square, EC1. Area 5 consisted of Bethnal Green, Shoreditch, Hackney and Stoke Newington with offices at 10 Hoxton Square, N1. In a further re-organisation at the end of 1953 the St Pancras and Bethnal Green offices were closed. St Pancras, Area 4 and Area 5 amalgamated as Area 4. Islington continued as Area 3 with the addition of Stoke Newington. In 1965 the Area 3 offices closed and Islington and Stoke Newington merged with Area 4 so that FWA area boundaries coincided with the new London borough boundaries.

Conditions of access: Casepapers may only be consulted if written permission is obtained from the Director of the Family Welfare Association. Once this permission has been obtained, detailed lists of the casepapers can be made available before consulting the records.

Appraisal information: These case papers have been selected for preservation and arranged by Area 4 Office. The COS/FWA normally destroyed case papers after twenty years. Consequently the casepapers which survived until the time of deposit in 1970 are for those cases which were still open in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.


Arrangement: Casepapers from each constituent district or area of Area 4 have usually been kept together as a group. Within each group they are arranged chronologically.

Administrative history:
The Blackheath Mendicity Society was formed in 1868. From these beginnings was developed the C.O.S. Committee for Lewisham. This closed down in 1921 for lack of financial support. No minute books appear to have survived.
Between 1920 and 1928 there was a large increase in the number of houses built in Lewisham especially on the LCC Bellingham and Downham estates, which led to an influx of families, many from the poorer districts of London, which in turn gave rise to a large increase in appeals for assistance. In response to this need the C.O.S. Lewisham Committee was revived in 1927 and new offices opened on 3 October 1927. In 1935 an additional C.O.S. Committee was formed for West Lewisham.

Administrative history:
The Sydenham and Forest Hill Branch of the Crystal Palace Mendicity Society was formed in 1869. It cooperated with the Central C.O.S. from the beginning and became the Sydenham and Forest Hill district committee of the C.O.S. It appears to have ceased to exist in about 1892. No minute books have survived.
The Sydenham Charity Organisation Society was formed in 1908. In 1910 it decided to ask for incorporation in the Central C.O.S.
The office closed in 1922 after the withdrawal of the grant from Central Office when insufficient local financial support could be found to replace the grant.
