Community Led Initiatives and a group of people who were overcoming or had overcome addiction issues were keen to use storytelling to help communicate what supports people on their recovery journey.


Our Role

People’s Voice Media worked with the group to train them as Community Reporters and support them to use these skills to gather people’s stories of addiction and how they have or are trying to overcome it. These powerful stories were edited into a short film with the group of Reporters that pulled out some of the core themes from the stories they’d gathered. The group are using the film to try to dispel the stigma around addiction and bring about changes in social attitudes towards people who have addiction issues.
