About

Focusing on activity between 1914 until 1920, in Cardiff and surrounding areas, Stories/Straeon is hoping to uncover the untold stories from the Home Front that helped Cardiff during WWI.

Volunteers are trawling archives and recording new material, documenting the implications of WWI on the people of Cardiff, with a focus on charities and the charity work that took place during this period.

Charities played an important role in relieving wartime distress and supporting communities across the city in the aftermath. Stories/Straeon hopes to uncover and celebrate these efforts, preserving them for future generations.

Stories/Straeon has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to support our volunteers who are trawling archives and recording new material, documenting the implications of WWI on the people of Cardiff, with a focus on charities and the charity work that took place during this period.
