Who are we?
We are the Atos Story Collective.

If you don't know about ATOS you can find out more here, here and here
We want to tell the stories that ATOS would like to ban.
We have no names in solidarity with all the voices that ATOS has silenced.
What do we want to do?
We want to hear from people who have experienced  ATOS assessments. We will use these stories to create a piece of drama that tells the world the truth about ATOS Healthcare.  We recognise that some people will wish to remain anonymous, and will respect that anonymity, but will credit those who wish to make their face public. If we collect too many stories to put into a play, we will publish the rest as a downloadable document for people to share to support each other and assist with campaigning.
If you'd like to share your story with us, please send it to  by 31st December 2011. We promise to acknowledge every story and make sure to use it as effectively as we can.

We will test this play with audiences to fine tune it. When we are satisfied it works we will put the script up on this website. We want people to download it and put it on in their communities in the build up to the 2012 Paralympics.  We will encourage people to video their performances and upload them on this website.
On August 29th 2011 we intend to perform Atos Stories in Tower Hamlets to coincide with the launch of the Paralympics. We will invite followers of this site to do the same wherever you are.
So if you give a toss, spread the word, send us your stories,  and then join us in telling them to the world.
