Pioneering community worker and founder of Bristol’s Barton Hill Settlement

Hilda Cashmore (1876-1943), her life and community work in Bristol and beyond.

Over 100 years since its foundation, Bristol’s Barton Hill Settlement is still operating as an important community hub in the city. This book tells the story of its first warden, Hilda Cashmore, her campaign to establish the Settlement, and her approach to social work as exemplified by its activities in its early days.

But Cashmore’s commitment to providing social care went far beyond Bristol. The book covers her contribution to helping civilians and refugees in the First World War, saving Manchester University Settlement during the Great Depression and her astonishing settlement in India.

Quaker, feminist, educator and social worker, Cashmore became the first woman president of the British Association of Residential Settlements. Her vision of a future, where people and place matter, is an inspiration still relevant in the present day.
