Why Life Stories?

Life stories are a powerful capture of key events, individuals and memories in the life of a child who is being supported by social care.

They have been proven to have a significant positive effect on children looked after, helping them make sense of their experiences and their past, to support them in gaining a secure sense of identity.

Life stories are a key part of the work that social workers complete with children looked after, but many do not have the time to complete this vital work.  Walk a Mile provides this service effectively for you.

We aim to produce an accurate, relevant account of his or her life, which has a powerful and long-lasting value and can be shared with them in a digital, age appropriate format.
