This is Us Project

“It was an opportunity for people to listen to me, that doesn’t happen much. I want more people to hear my story. We might not think our stories are inspiring, but some people might be inspired by them.” Student at Ladybridge High School

“I found the workshops really empowering and thought-provoking for the pupils. Krish and Madiha quickly built great relationships with the pupils, putting them at ease, making them laugh and take part in nuanced discussions. I could also see how positive and energised pupils were after the 121 interviews. Krish and Madiha were sensitive to the traumas some pupils carry, as well as their English language needs. The project so far has been so important as part of our effort to ensure international new arrival pupils feel they belong and are heard in our school community. It was such a pleasure having Krish and Madiha in the school!”

Some teachers have these questions

This is Us

We will discuss your needs over email first.

You will decide on the reasons you’re interested in the project and what you would like to get from it, the amount of individuals you would like to have involved and preferred dates.

With that we’ll prepare a proposal, including a timeline and send it to you on a deck in a PDF file, along with a quote for the work.

From here, we can arrange a short call to solve last questions.

You get approval for the work.

We start the project.

All of our projects are delivered by Krish and the team of ambassadors who have shared their story with Tales to Inspire.

Real-life people with lived experience to ensure the best real-life outcome for you!

Once our proposal has been accepted and payment received we get to work!

Initially we will deliver our bespoke half day storytelling masterclass to the students (groups of 5 students at a time) for them to truly understand the project and uncover their own story, including the parts they may have forgotten or thought were not important.

Once all the masterclasses are completing, we get to interviewing each of the students, capturing their stories in an in person interview and then taking that to our in house writing team.

Once our writing team has worked their magic, we will provide your school with our first draft, so that the students can either take out anything they feel they no longer want to share or add in anything that they felt they missed.

Depending on which package the school has purchased, the school will then go and source their own book publishers or we have the books published directly for the school

Yes, all of them, and we will provide DBS certificates to schools prior to delivery.

No. Tales to Inspire is a social enterprise/community interest company. This means that we are a not-for profit organisation with all profits going back in to our social mission: impacting a diverse array of communities whilst inspiring others that there is nothing that they cannot breakthrough.

From the first storytelling masterclass to the final product, we usually say this can be done within 4 months. This is dependent on availability of the school and students for interviews.

We are based in Greater Manchester. However, our facilitators are based around the country which means that we can provide bespoke workshops for you in a variety of locations.

The This is Us project starts at £6,800 capturing the stories of 30 people within your school community.

The true worth, however, extends far beyond the price tag. 

Consider it an investment in potential. The stories unveiled can ensure your school’s legacy reaches wider audiences. This potential for lasting impact makes every pound worthwhile.
