It started with a couple of lightly lyrical blog posts about support work but progressed from prose to performance poetry slams. Now Bryony uses her words to give voice to the subtle and sensitive stories she is part of through her work. In this talk she shares her insights as a frontline worker and also shows that frontline workers supporting individuals experiencing homelessness, mental ill-health substance misuse and offending behaviour need the space to create. Bryony took part in the Systems Changers programme for frontline workers run by Lankelly Chase. Lankelly Chase is a Being the Story Partner.
