Support First Story

Every young person deserves the opportunity to realise the power of their story.

Young people from low-income backgrounds are often cut off from opportunities to nurture their creativity, putting their voices and confidence at risk. Each year, First Story gives thousands of students a unique opportunity to explore their talent and express themselves. Participants and teachers report that our programme increases confidence, self-esteem and aspiration, as well as strengthening writing and reading skills. First Story students also tend to perform beyond expectations in exams and have improved school attendance and engagement.

Your support is vital.
