Grants were awarded to 12 cultural projects to create a collective record of the public's response to hosting the 2012 Games.

These projects, which took place between June and October 2012, explore the transformation of communities; themes of health, sport and wellbeing; and young people's aspirations through engagement work and the legacy of the 2012 Games.

The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games were a once in a lifetime event that needed to be recorded for posterity. Since 2008 museums, libraries and archives around the UK have supported community groups to have their say and tell their stories. The People's Record website showcases the results.
