WHY US?

Professionals with experience

We have  experience of working with people of all ages to collect their life stories. Our oldest participant so far has been 101.

We respect that your story is precious and we appreciate the act of sharing a story with us. In return we treat you and your story with respect and integrity.  We share the aim of preserving stories for an uncertain future and we aim to make the storytelling experience enjoyable for you.

We have worked with people of all ages and abilities and a growing number of people have trusted us to capture their stories.

We also work professionally with Local Authorities, Government Records Offices, Museums and other organisations on their story projects so you can have faith that our services are trusted by others.

We work to a series of ethics to ensure you and your stories are treated with the trust they deserve.

We appreciate the importance of preservation and to consider the future even beyond our own company lifetime - which is why we also work with government archives.

We encourage you to review examples of our work and judge it for yourself.
