Roots of Change is a storytelling platform dedicated to the Alumni community of The Funding Network Australia. Here we share their stories of ingenuity, courage, determination, spirit, growth and the impact these grassroots organisations have had, as a direct result of funds and support received from The Funding Network community.

The Biography Program

The Biography Program

Enabling people in aged care to write their life stories.

The Biography Program supports volunteer biographers to facilitate the story-telling process as a means to celebrate, honour, affirm and validate the unique and rich lives of the elders in our community. The biography is a book of the client's life, told in their own words, and assembled by the volunteer biographer. However, the service is more than just what can be held in the hand. Its real value is in creating a space for personal reflection for the older client.


2013 Pitch
Funds raised: $15,950

The Biography Program got involved in TFN's 2013 pilot series and raised $15,950 to continue building programs that enable people in aged care to write their life stories.
