Sharing Stories

Tell Your Stories - Share Ideas - Make Connections

Supporting volunteers and organisations to use storytelling and story listening techniques to reduce loneliness and isolation of older people.

Our storytelling training teaches volunteers to become good Story Listeners and use storytelling interventions to re-connect older people with their social environment.

We offer learning materials that organisations can use to teach their volunteers how to encourage older people to share their life stories, and evaluation tools to measure the impacts of these storytelling interventions.

The Stor-E Tree tools for recording and sharing stories are available as printed manuals or a digital app.
