Big Aberdeen Stories – be part of them

Big Aberdeen Stories gives citizens an opportunity to get involved in helping fellow Aberdonians through a challenge in their lives, to share their experiences and have their voices heard.  It gives you the opportunity to connect your activity in to a real local story, raise awareness of your work and influence the direction the story takes.

The webpage and project as a whole are as dynamic as you make them, being refreshed with what you provide.

If you have a Big Aberdeen Story you want to tell, get in touch and we will see if we can make it happen.
