Story

Caregiver Amanda Knowles MBE and care experienced Rosie Canning Author and Doctoral Researcher are now seeking your support to fund this unique ANNUAL EVENT.

There are a lot of care-experienced people who want to share their stories, for all sorts of reasons. Personal, therapeutic, for family, for history and publication. Your Life Your Story brings care experienced adults and caregivers with literary aspirations together with published authors, artists and poets to reflect and learn the art of storytelling in a therapeutically supported environment.

The first Your Life Your Story was during Care Leavers Week 2017 brought together 3 published authors and14 care-experienced adults with an age range from 18-59. They were, “extraordinary, and courageous people”... and much more. Inspiring and inspirational. Warm and funny. Resilient. Beautiful human beings giving to the world and living truly exceptional lives.

Your Life Your Story 2018. The story starts now and is written in chalk not ink. Changing the narrative..... https://careleaversinfiction.wordpress.com/2018/11/23/your-life-your-story-2018/
