Description

Openstorytellers works to enrich the lives of people marginalised because of learning and communication difficulties. We do this through the telling and sharing of stories, using a collaborative approach based on fifteen years of research and practice. Our innovative day services, courses, workshops, activities and events help hundreds of people every year.

Communication skills – Hearing stories from others and sharing personal experiences helps reduce feelings of isolation.

Relationships and social connections – Learning how to listen and empathise with others helps develop relationships and friendships.

Confidence – Shared storytelling helps develop confidence, empowerment and problem-solving skills.

Independence – Learning transferable skills increases opportunities for work and getting involved in the community.
