ABOUT US

Welcome to Crafting Relationships. 

 A values led, not for profit social enterprise operating a continual cycle of delivery, learning and sharing.

Our two core programmes work with primary age children and older adults, independently and together, around the themes of heritage, education, social action and creativity.

We also run workshops and offer consultation for other organisations, large and small, on how to run great social good initiatives.

Our name tells you a lot about our ethos and approach – we work with people, building and nurturing relationships through a variety of creative approaches, always ensuring the work we do leaves a legacy, be that physical or emotional.

Our core programmes:

“Empowering.”                 “Awesome sessions.”               “A privilege to be part of.” 

“My husband and I were going to book a holiday, but this takes priority.” 

“Your compassionate approach to different styles of learning is fantastic.” 

YourStory is a unique intergenerational, social action project for KS2 children, grandparents and honorary grandparents linking education, heritage, social action and community.  

By exploring key social movements in the past, and the stories of characters involved, we inspire students to identify opportunities for making a difference to the world around them, whether that be in the spotlight or behind the scenes. 

YourStory increases confidence and aspiration amongst all children involved, and especially those who find a traditional classroom environment challenging. Opportunities for intergenerational working are not only beneficial for children; they also support lifelong learning and agency amongst older community members.  

We also, where possible, mentor a young person from Y Heritage in Leicester within the programme. They are fully DBS checked and work alongside us. 

Get in touch if you’d like to be involved.

Heritage and wellbeing get-togethers for over 50s at risk of, experiencing, or looking to keep at bay, social isolation and loneliness. Working in partnership with museums and libraries.
