PPR has worked with Michael Patrick MacDonald, a Boston based, award-winning author and facilitator , to deliver The Rest of the Story since 2019.

This programme is a trauma-informed, community-based story-telling curriculum. It is designed to help participants transform trauma to voice, agency and leadership.

On Friday 3 June programme participants came together, along with their families and friends and campaign allies to celebrate their completion of the programme and to share their stories in Gairdín an Phobail, West Belfast.

They were delighted to be joined by guest writers Louise Kennedy, Cathy Carson and Michael Nolan.
