We need your help!

Will you help us open up the future
for Western Sydney's young people?

Imagine if you didn’t have the writing skills and confidence to realise your dreams. There are thousands of young people across Western Sydney for whom this is the reality. We're on a mission to turn things around and open up their futures!

In September we're opening an exciting new creative writing centre in Parramatta, right at the heart of Western Sydney. 

We’ve found the perfect space and we've hired a great team.

We’ve got schools hungry to work with us and the community behind us. 

Thanks to some amazing supporters, we have the money to fit out our new digs, open the doors, and offer our first workshops.

But we need to raise the money to run the many, many programs so badly needed in communities like Mt Druitt, Granville, Fairfield, Campbelltown and Liverpool.

This is critical. There’s no point in opening the doors if we can’t reach the young people who most stand to benefit!

Will you make a tax-deductible donation to help us get there? If you haven’t donated before, or it’s been a while, now is the time.

Can you spare $30? Or perhaps a bit more?

This will cover a place for one child or more in a workshop that could transform their lives.

Or, maybe you'd like to join us as a volunteer? 

Becoming a volunteer writing tutor is one of the very best ways to become part of the Story Factory team. Best of all, you’ll get to work closely with our amazing students, knowing you’re making an important difference to their lives.

And if you know some young people who might benefit from participating in our programs, we offer fantastic one-off creative writing and storytelling workshops for class groups of up to 20 students. So schools are encouraged to get in touch!

Together, let’s launch Sydney Story Factory Parramatta off to a flying start, and start changing lives from Day One. Thank you!
