Parent Stories


Back in 2012 we led a writing project to record the experiences of parents and carers who had spent time in hospital with their children. Local author Beverley Ward worked with parents at Sheffield Children's Hospital as part of Off the Shelf Festival, to help them express their feelings through poems and short stories.

We received such great feedback about the results, that we decided to published the collection as a special booklet of 'Parent Stories'.

100% of the profits go to our Artfelt project, which believes that art can make hospital feel better.

If you are affected by any of these stories or if you'd like to talk to someone about your experiences in hospital, please contact Julie Mather in our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) on 0114 2717594.
