Sharing A Story CIC is a small community organisation in East Lothian.

We run shared reading and creative writing sessions in order to reduce social isolation. Our main goal is to empower people to communicate and use their voice by engaging in discussions inspired by books and having the time and space to tell their own stories.

Sharing stories together as a group can foster social cohesion and we have seen at first-hand the difference these sessions and the magic of words can make to people’s health and well-being.
