In Our Own Voices
“It’s fair to say that coming here saved my life. I think that, if I had continued the way that I was going, the drink would have killed me. I would have been dead. I’ve no doubt about that.”
This year Compact Voice is all about telling people’s stories – for Agnes a visit to an Edinburgh third sector organisation changed her life.
Read Agnes’ story and other stories which illustrate how some of the key city priorities are currently being tackled in the third sector.
The Case Studies in Compact Voice
Agnes – finding connections in a new City
Piotr – making sure his family isn’t homeless
Vimal – why affordable childcare matters to her
Steve – volunteering and the importance of lived experience
Kevin – finding out what benefits he is entitled to
