YOUR LIFE YOUR STORY… unleashing the power of relationships

Is a small charity YLYS managed by a group of 5 trustees who are care experienced adults, caregivers or both. We host an annual literary event that brings care experienced adults and caregivers together with published authors, poets and artists to learn the techniques of storytelling through the arts in a therapeutically supported environment. We perform at conferences, deliver life story workshops to children, young people and training to professionals. We offer this in recognition of the scientifically proven link between childhood adversity, social isolation, adult mental health and the value of lived experience.
