This is the second workshop on the Untold Stories: Windrush NHS Stories Project. It is free to take part and any Windrush NHS staff (past or present) or their families are welcome to take part.

Community Champion Jackie Bailey would like to hear from members of the African Caribbean community who have practical experience of working in the NHS. We are keen to represent the voices and experiences of the wide range of workers (and their families and communities) that make up the NHS. This includes chefs, doctors, drivers, nurses, paramedics, physiotherapists, security, support workers and all other roles. Award-winning writers and experts in their fields will deliver workshops in a number of creative forms across the whole world of literature, allowing participants to shape how they tell their untold stories as members of Caribbean communities in Manchester who have worked in, or have family members that have contributed to the National Health Service.

The collated Windrush NHS Stories will be shared in June 2023 as part of the Manchester Festival of Libraries. Later in 2023, they will be featured as part of an exhibition at Manchester Poetry Library: Untold Stories of the NHS. Untold Stories will celebrate the contribution of workers in a range of roles and from diverse backgrounds to the delivery of care and to the NHS Story.


Location of all workshops: Room BR3.77 at Brooks Building, Manchester Metropolitan University, 53 Bonsall Street, Hulme, Manchester, M15 6GX
Time of all workshops: 10:30am – 12:45pm.
Light refreshments will be available at all workshops.
