Storytelling for Life

Truth Be Told is all about belonging.
We are an intergenerational storytelling charity that brings joy and life to older adults in care homes and the community in the UK & beyond.

Family together

With the help of 0-4’s and their grown-ups, our Partner Churches deliver a whole range of creative storytelling activities to share that sense of family with older adults. Our Storytellers use a special bag covered in pockets and full of props to lead their sessions and each week follows a different theme like ‘transport’, ‘animals’ or ‘colours’ and each story tells of a different truth, such as ‘I am loved’, ‘I am safe’ or ‘I am precious’. It’s always responsive, inclusive and fun for everyone, while helping to promote cognition and reduce loneliness.

What People are Saying

“I heard about Truth Be Told through my mum and thought it sounded like a lovely idea – and I’m so glad we came. Charlie has spent the morning with a wonderful group of older people, making them smile and clearly enjoying their company. It will be great to watch him getting to know them all in the coming weeks.”
