We are telling the SPAN story in a range of ways, including in a film, a leaflet, a mural, a selection of limited edition commemorative mugs and in academic or news articles.


Our webinar to present the research from a community perspective has been postponed until 2022. In the meantime, you can download the “Introduction leaflet” as well as the longer guide “Aiming at Successful Co-Produced Research from a Community Perspective (2021)” co-written by Jude Hutchen and Annie Oliver, Wellspring Settlement.

Short Film

We have worked with Calling The Shots to produce a short film, including the perspectives of the History Group and some of the original members of SPAN. The filming was completed just before the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK, with the final editing happening during the lockdown.

The film premiered at our online event on 14 July 2020.


If you’d like to share the film you can find it on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/435016661/5c95e346f3 

Illustrated Leaflet

In collaboration with MSTA Design we have produced an illustrated leaflet with key details about SPAN, our project, and the situation of single parents today. Please feel free to download and share.

Limited Edition Commemorative Mugs


Instead of a traditional presentation of the SPAN archive as an exhibition a series of limited edition commemorative mugs were proposed to present the values and culture of SPAN.

Becky Whitmore and Jude Hutchen gathered images and interview quotes from the archive to create designs for a series of four limited edition commemorative mugs.  The group edited the designs and made the final selection which were produced by Stokes Croft China / People’s Republic of Stokes Croft.

The mugs will be distributed to all those who have been involved in or supported the project to enjoy, be inspired and show their friends and family.

News Article

Our community researcher Yvonne Deeney’s article about the project has been published in the Bristol 24/7 online journal.
