How you can support Ministry of Stories during lockdown
July 1, 2020 | News
We are a fast moving and creative organisation and need talented, committed and motivated staff to help us inspire a nation of young storytellers.
We empower eight to 18 year olds to unleash their imaginations, build their confidence and self-respect and enhance their communication skills.
Through a range of innovative writing programmes, and one-to-one mentoring, we help young people discover and realise their own creative potential.
We are currently recruiting for a range of volunteer roles. Our dedicated volunteers support our young writers to realise their talent and help to run the UK’s only monster supplies shop.Learn more
