Custodial history:
The Association was formed in 1958 from an amalgamation of the District Provident and Family Welfare Association (established in 1833 as the Manchester and Salford District Provident Society, renamed in 1894 the District Provident and Charity Organisation Society of Manchester and Salford, and in 1948, the District Provident and Family Welfare Society) and the Manchester City League of Help (established 1907 as a daughter body of the District Provident Society). Both societies were founded to help alleviate the sufferings of the poor and sick at all times, but were particularly active in times of special distress such as the Cotton Famine of the early 1860s, the trade depression of 1878, the mining disaster at Clifton Hall Colliery in 1885, the South African War of 1899, and the two World Wars of the 20th century.
Most of the following papers were deposited in the Library in March 1978 by Miss M.W. Harrison, General Secretary. The Blair Trust Papers were deposited in June 1992.
