Give the gift of photography this Christmas and become a member of PhotoVoice. Not only will you receive lots of great benefits yourself, you’ll be giving a gift of photography to our beneficiaries too. You will help support someone like AW who took part in our acclaimed ‘Having Our Say Too’ project, which for the past two years has worked with young people affected by or at risk of sexual exploitation.
“This project has given me more than anyone would ever know. The whole experience of making images that represent me has been great. I have had my confidence really knocked and have felt very low. This project has helped me to trust my worker more and has helped me to stand up for myself too – to believe in myself.”
“I had been offered therapy and just didn’t want to sit in a room with someone I didn’t know and talk about what I had been through. When I was offered the photography project I thought – ok I’ll do it – it’ll get them all off my back but I can’t tell you what this has meant to me.
How I was so cynical – how can taking a photograph help me to think about and talk about what I have been through? But I can’t explain how every photograph I made began to offer me the space in my head to really think about it all. It was sometimes really hard but it’s got me there.
I have told my story now and I hope it will help other young people in similar situations who think they are in something they are not.”
