Open Story Tellers
Open Story Tellers is a charity that works with people who are marginalised because of learning and communication difficulties. Stories are the way we make sense of what has happened and so they are critical to our sense of who we are. Our identities consist in the stories we tell ourselves and others.
People with learning disabilities may find it hard to tell and recall stories because of difficulties in learning and communication or because people do not listen. The service seeks to remove these barriers and give people the skills to share all sorts of stories: myths, legends, folktales and personal experiences, so they can be heard, understood and have choices in life.
