YOUR LIFE YOUR STORY… unleashing the power of relationships
Your Life Your Story, is a small charity managed by a group of 4 trustees who are care experienced adults, caregivers or both. We deliver creative based workshops & training to professionals, perform at conferences, exhibitions & events, and work with children & young people to explore their story through creativity and the arts.
We host an annual creative residential event that brings care experienced adults and caregivers together with published authors, poets and artists to learn the techniques of storytelling; to connect with their story and each other through the arts in a therapeutically supported environment
Collectively we understand the value of creativity and connection, not only in the lives of people who have experienced adversity but also in providing insight for those who work along side them.
Many Your Life Your Story participants remain connected and our community has grown nationally since the first event in the Autumn of 2017.
Your Life Your Story is home to a hugely diverse community with a shared identity, and as our collective voice grows louder so does our determination to make a positive contribution to improving services for vulnerable children and the adult’s they become through mutually rewarding relationships reclaimed through the shared narrative of lived experience.
