Big Lottery Fund - Lottery Funded

Ceartas is currently seeking a Writer in Residence to facilitate our creative writing project “My Voice, My Choice”.

Thanks to funding from the Big Lottery, Investing in Ideas Award, Ceartas are delighted to announce that they will be running a Creative Writing Project, My Voice, My Choice, in the autumn of this year.
My Voice, My Choice will encourage participants to explore and use the written word to record their experiences. Facilitating a group which supports people to tell their stories in this new format will help to develop confidence and empower members of the community who often feel discriminated against or excluded.

This project will culminate in a publication which will be used to challenge and break down the stigma around “service user land” and associated conditions. We also intend to use the publication as a tool to raise awareness and understanding of the benefits of independent advocacy, by giving examples of advocacy within context that will help explain just how advocacy can support you.
