Illustrative words reading "How did it all begin"

Grimm & Co’s mission is to change lives, one story at a time.

We run innovative, creative writing activities with one to one support and mentoring to help young people discover their potential.

 Our child-led approach aims to build participants’ literacy and creativity skills, confidence, capacity and self-belief. We place the child and young person at the centre of it all, as experts, journeying forth in whatever creative way they desire. Our immersive and multi-sensory space encourages the shedding of the mortal world.  Young people are therefore encouraged to step forth into the imagination, the unknown, and the possible. Staff and associate artists experience in-depth training to ensure our mission is at the centre of all learning experiences. Equally, we train and support volunteers to provide one to one mentoring, support and constructive feedback to young people. Every creative programme results in a finished output.

It is this combination of purposeful writing and the celebration of such work that allows children and young people to feel that their voice is not only worth hearing, it is integral to all of our futures.
