In November 2023, we heard from Sam Smith, CEO of C-Change, about two stories she has gathered as a first step to bringing a number of stories together about the impact of small supports on a person’s life and what that life is now like.

In April, we will be sharing the outcome of this work, which, as explained in November, will be the first instalment in a living library of stories from people; please come along and hear what it means to people to have support that is truly centred around the person and what it means to them.
