About Storybank

Welcome to Storybank from Iriss. We've developed this resource to support people involved in all aspects of health and social care to understand the potential benefits of storytelling, and to understand, gather and use stories where appropriate. Throughout, we are using the term 'stories' to refer to true, autobiographical descriptions of experiences and perceptions.

Storybank, from IRISS

Storybank includes a range of resources, including:

  • An Iriss Insight The role of personal storytelling in practice which assesses the evidence around storytelling in health and social care
  • Links to a number of guides to storytelling to assist people who wish to gather or use stories
  • Links to existing single and collected stories, which have been categorised to help people to explore those most relevant to their field

Storybank is intended as a living resource, so please get in touch if you would like us to add any guides or stories.
