We’re on a mission
Imagine how much we’d learn about ourselves, others and our society if we had first-hand accounts of our grandparents, great-grandparents and their great-grandparents to delve into? Or how wider our perspective would be if we knew the story of overcoming a challenge that someone our own age has lived through?
That’s what drives Living Narratives. We want you to feel confident to tell your story, whatever your age or background. And that means finding ways to overcome any obstacles that might be holding you back or preventing you from getting started.
Watch this space! We will continue developing our products and services to bring us closer to our mission. And feel free to chat with us – we’d love to hear how you’re going with your life-story-writing journey.Contact us

Congratulations on writing your story! No doubt it’s been a big job, but hopefully one that you’ve enjoyed doing.
Letters are incredibly valuable for historians, researchers, and individuals who are interested in learning more about their own family history.
The old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
