IT'S GOOD TO TALK.

It’s time for people who have experienced and/or are working in the homelessness, social care, mental health, and criminal justice systems across the UK to have a conversation.

The power of the Wisdoms is that there is a collective and inclusive voice (not the loudest or most powerful) which is heard and acted upon

WHAT IS WISDOM FROM THE SYSTEM?

Wisdom from the System is a safe space to discuss, share, and reflect on your experiences of systems, whether that’s homelessness, social care, mental health, or criminal justice. The conversation will take place online, in a group call that will encourage people to speak freely and honestly.

These calls will be recorded and listened to respectfully, by strategic thinkers with grassroots experience of systems, who will aim to capture key themes and create a powerful account of people’s raw and honest experiences of systems in the UK. It is hoped that this can then be used to inform positive and sustainable change.

You can also share your experience through the website or get in touch if you would prefer to talk to someone. Wisdom form the System is facilitated by Mayday Trust, Platfform, Homeless Network Scotland, and Changing Lives, but is 100% led by you and what you would like to share.

"It's not me, it's the system!"

YOU TALK, WE LISTEN.

Be brave enough to start a conversation that matters

"I want to empower people, not fix them"
