Welcome to our temporary website, deliberately simple, purely functional. It will improve visually later!
This webpage enables free downloading of the updated 'press pack'-style documentation that originally appeared here in 2008 under the name "Hillsborough For 'Dummies': Facts Behind The Disaster". The updated version consists of several documents, all of which can be downloaded as separate PDF files, or as a combined package in one easy click.
We updated and changed in order to appeal to a much wider audience and the concern was that the original name would not sit well with the publishers of the "...For Dummies" publications, especially since media interest is much higher in this the 20th anniversary year.
We have also changed the name and content of the Facebook group.
This special version kindly provided by CDP Print Management contains supplementary video footage and images throughout the text.
The recent appeal for funds, enabling us to release "Context & Consequences" as a book with ISBN and therefore legal inclusion in the British Libraries, has so far raised over £2300, with more still coming in.
If you wish to make a donation, no matter how small, you can do so via PayPal using the 'Send Money to a Friend' option.
The address of the fundraising account is: email@example.com.
All funds left over from publishing and related costs will be shared equally between the Hillsborough Family Support Group, the Hillsborough Justice Campaign and Hope For Hillsborough.
Absolutely no personal profit is being made by any party involved in this project!
We wish to make it clear that these documents are not meant to replace any of the excellent work already in existence, rather 'HFD' is intended to be complementary. The format is deliberately simple and as objective as could be made, steering clear of emotive language and keeping only to sourced facts and information. Although none of this information is new per se, 'HFD' is intended to be a one-stop reference guide to anyone researching the topic.
Copyright applies, so please do not host this information elsewhere without prior consent. That said, we actively encourage you to spread the news that this information exists!
The original ".....For Dummies" 10-minute film* is still available on Youtube - [10 minute Hillsborough Football Disaster film] - the original 4 & 15-page documents are available on request. Just drop us a line!
* Fair warning: the video contains some images that some people might find distressing. We are particularly keen that survivors be aware that scenes of the crowds in the pens might trigger flashbacks. Personal discretion is advised.
If you have any questions, comments or feedback please do not hesitate to contact us. All enquiries, whether from general readers or specific media sources, will be responded to as quickly as possible.
Thanks for reading.
