A History of this Website
"Therapeutic Living With Other People's Children" Legacy Website
The "Therapeutic Living With Other People's Children" website was created in 2010 for the purposes of the "Therapeutic Living" project. It consists of a main site, and seven embedded 'Community' sites, created for and with members of the communities concerned in order to share archive, oral history, and other material related to each community. The Heritage Lottery Fund-supported project came to an end in 2011, and in accordance with provisions of the HLF grant this website will be maintained by the Planned Environment Therapy Trust for (at least) 25 years, as a record of the project and for the benefit of the public.
The main site and several of the Community sites continued to develop post-project.
In March 2012 the website was subject to a savage hacking attack. The site went off-line while the problem was dealt with. When the site came back online in April, it was with reduced functionality through the de-installation of several extensions. The site lost its timelines and maps, and audio and video connections were largely broken.The audio and video have been gradually restored.
In July 2012, partly in response to ongoing spamming, new Registrations were suspended on the main site and all the Community sites. Existing registered members will continue to be able to access their password-protected areas of the website, and to add material, but no new registrations will be possible.
Community sites will be re-designed and transferred to a new Communities section on the Planned Environment Therapy Trust website, where they can continue to be developed and to flourish. The new Wennington School community website will be independently hosted and developed by the Wennington Old Scholars Association, in ongoing partnership with PETT.
