We are delighted to announce that NCW will be included in a book celebrating 75 years of the Commonwealth which will be launched at Westminster Abbey. 

26th April 2024 marks the official 75th anniversary of the Commonwealth and NCW is to be included in one of the most ambitious and authoritative academic projects in British history to celebrate this great occasion. 

The History of Parliament Trust has announced a new publication entitled “The Commonwealth at 75”, which is to be launched in October. NCW will feature in the book and a representative is also invited to attend the launch event at Westminster Abbey.

Exploring the origins, history and impact of the Commonwealth, the fully illustrated publication celebrates the 75th anniversary of the family of nations and the ideas, individuals and organisations who have contributed to its success. NCW has been approached as a thought leader in the field of education for children and young people with a vision impairment and invited to be part of the project – which will see Principal Rachel Perks represent NCW at the official launch event.

The book also marks the appointment of King Charles III as the Head of the Commonwealth and features the writing of renowned royal authors Robert Jobson and Katie Nicholl, alongside the images of veteran royal photographer Arthur Edwards.

“We’re delighted to be launching this prestigious publication, which pays tribute to the Commonwealth and its member states. The 75th anniversary offers the perfect opportunity to reflect on its past, present and future.”

We are honoured and delighted to be part of this wonderful project. The history of NCW dates back over 150 years so we have been providing the best education and care of young people who are vision impaired for the whole of the history of the Commonwealth. It is a privilege to be involved.

The book launch event is due to take place in October 2024.
