Rachel Ireland - Creative Coach

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.


Our aim is to provide all the information and resources you need to create a platform to turn your story of change into social impact by setting up and growing a not-for-profit organisation or community group.


We do this through:


This is for you if you:

  • 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.

  • have identified a problem, feel compelled to fix it but don’t know where to start.
