Service summary

Openstorytellers is a charity that works to enrich and empower the lives of people who have learning disabilities and autism.

We do this through varied work around the telling and sharing of stories, including personal narrative as well as classic stories, using a collaborative approach. We believe that stories play a major role in building relationships and a personal sense of identity, sharing experience and helping people to participate in society.

Based in our Community Hub in the heart of Frome, our work includes work skills and employment support, advocacy and citizenship groups, friendship and life skills projects, multi-sensory storytelling for people with profound disabilities, and, of course, we have ‘The Openstorytellers’ - a professional user-led company of storytellers with learning disabilities.
