Story Matters is a not for profit community interest company based in South East London.
We help people and communities to tell and share their stories.
Working with schools, youth clubs, libraries, housing associations, and whole communities, we create bespoke programmes and events that provide opportunities to engage with stories and storytelling in different ways. Importantly, we empower and support people and communities to find their voice and become story makers themselves.
We engage with vibrant, diverse and complex inner-city areas, where people can be disadvantaged by social, economic and emotional barriers to success. Through our work with story and storytelling we aim to break down these barriers and shorten achievement gaps by promoting collaboration and developing resilience and confidence.
