‘Change The World’ from The Creative Map

The memories and experiences we gather throughout our lives shape how we evolve, who we become, and what we want. It’s often the challenging times that make us stronger, and our moments of achievement that show us exactly what we’re made of.

Often, when someone goes through a life-changing experience, for example a breakdown, bereavement, prison sentence, addiction, or illness, they feel a sense of duty to help other people in the same situation; they feel called to take action.

These people become advocates, volunteers & activists – in short, they change the world.

It’s likely that your own unique set of experiences inform the changes you want to see in the world. 

My aim is to provide all the resources and inspiration you need to make a positive difference in your community, whether as an individual or a group.

This is for you if you:

  • are ready to turn what matters to you into real impact.

  • want to turn your pain/struggle/survival/recovery into positive action.

  • have a deep and compelling need to shine a light on an issue you feel strongly about.

Resources and inspiration to help you make a difference in your community.

I set up The Creative Map in 2019 as a social enterprise, having worked in and with the third sector for over 16 years.

I believe we all have the ability to turn our unique set of experiences and skills into something that could make a positive difference in the world.

I send two emails per month, sharing resources, videos, case studies and inspirational stories from the community to help you on your way.

Ask a question or share inspiration & news in our community chat in the app.

If you've been reconnecting to your creativity and setting new goals, and now you're ready to make a positive difference in the world, I hope you find something here that inspires you.
