In April 2016 the Cádiz provincial government and the Foro por la Memoria del Campo de Gibraltar signed two agreements to equip the Casa de la Memoria, enable it to open and finance its first activities. The agreements signed by the president of the Cádiz Provincial Government, Irene García, and the president of the Forum, Andrés Rebolledo, lay down the conditions for the provincial government’s financial support.

The Junta de Andalucía’s Democratic Memory Committee has also financed part of the activities to bring this project to fruition, especially its promotion. The Junta has donated some of the books which are now in the library and has made hundreds of copies in DVD format of documentaries which have been produced by the forum: La Sauceda, de la utopía al horror and La noche más larga.
In addition to the provincial government and the Junta de Andalucía, other institutions and organisations have collaborated to make this house possible. The councils of Castellar de la Frontera and Casares are going to help equip the Casa de la Memoria La Sauceda, as the mayor of Castellar, Juan Casanova, and the Councillor for Culture in Casares, Rocío Ruiz Romero, confirmed on a joint visit to the Casa a few weeks before its inauguration.
The Centro de Estudios Andaluces, (of which the Museo de la Autonomía de Andalucía is part, situated in the house in Coria del Río in which Blas Infante lived during the final years of his life), has also donated a large number of books about the recent history of Andalucía and the war and the repression of the inhabitants of this region.
Other people and entities who have collaborated in putting together the library and the documents in the archive are San Roque council; José Chamizo, the former Andalucían Ombudsman; Andrés Vázquez de Sola, a journalist and painter from San Roque; historian Antonio Morales Benítez; and Juan García del Castillo and Francisco Larios, who collaborate with the forum.
José Manuel Algarbani, who is a historian and qualified in documentation, together with historian Fernando Sígler, archaeologist Jesús Román and researcher Luis García Bravo have also helped to convert this house into a documentation centre which contains, in addition to the specialist library, an archive containing material from historians and researchers from all over Andalucía. This archive contains:
1.- Documents in paper format. Digitised archives.
2.- Archive or oral/written/video testimonies.
3.- Photo archive (Fototeca)

As well as being a centre for research, the Casa de la Memoria also plays an active role in the cultural life of the Campo de Gibraltar and carries out the following activities with that in mind:

Cycle of conferences about the historic memory.
• Day-long conferences about historic memory, held annually.

• Relationships with schools: publication of teaching guides on educational values, collaboration with primary and secondary schools, conferences, workshops, educational visits etc.
• Publishing books, producing documentaries etc.
• Temporary exhibitions about the historic memory.
• Screenings of fictional films and documentaries.
• Collecting oral testimonies.
• Assistance for victims and their families.
