The Life Story Project has been funded by the Lottery Community Fund for a five year period beginning in April 2019. The Project works with Young People aged 11-22 who are in Care, have left Care or who have been Adopted , and who have had questions about their lives and experiences, in the past and in the present.
The project works to help these young people to fill in the gaps in their personal history and to talk about their memories, both positive and negative.
Life Story work provides each young person with information about his/her past and helps him/her to understand this information through:
The Life Story worker completes a coherent narrative from the information gathered for and during the work, and produces a record of the work in the format of an individual bespoke Life Story Book.
The Life Story project accepts referrals for young people across Northern Ireland via their local Health & Social Care Trust and is Lottery funded for five years.
