Through our community projects we facilitate access to participatory literature activities for children and young people outside of school settings. Community projects provide empowering opportunities for children and young people to work with writers and illustrators to make and share stories. We especially seek to engage groups who are experiencing marginalisation, isolation or who are at risk. We always co-design projects responsively through consultation with community partners and participants to reflect the needs, values and interests of those taking part. Projects revolve around collaboration or co-creation, through author-led processes, to produce quality stories in diverse forms and other languages that can be shared with the wider world. Our community projects improve the wellbeing, aspirations and life chances of children and young people.
