Sharing stories - a celebration of life. A simple, effective way to improve self esteem and wellbeing whilst also creating a legacy for future generations.

Created by Miranda Quinney with specialist support from Doreen Pattenson, Sharing Stories for Wellbeing provides a framework for participants to share their life stories in a supportive environment. SS4WB training enables facilitators to run life story sharing workshops in a wide variety of environments including hospices, community groups and care homes.
Northampton University's evaluation of the hospice based workshops identified measurable effects on the wellbeing of participants.
Our intention is to inspire,and we are delighted that so many workshop participants go on to create their own biographical legacy in writing, film or paint.

It was a great morning, absolutely inspiring. I loved the way you emphasised that no life is just "ordinary", but that we are all special and our stories are valid and worth recording. Actually, the word I would use to describe the whole thing is "vibrant" - our memories are not dead and lifeless but can have a resonance in our lives today and can touch anyone with whom we share them.

I think it's helped me; I really do think it's helped me. Seeing it
in words, on a page, makes a big difference.
