supporting richer lives together
Our invaluable forum for leading
Our training programme laying the foundations for best practice
Creating a blueprint for excellence in services for older people
Flourishing Lives is a London-wide coalition of organisations taking a creative, relational approach to supporting richer, more independent lives for older people.
We believe that building quality relationships is the heart of our work - genuinely engaging with older people as unique individuals and forming close bonds with the dedicated staff and volunteers who work alongside them.
We connect practitioners, day centres, major arts organisations, health & fitness initiatives and community outreach programmes so that knowledge, research and resources can be shared and the very highest level of practice can be established across the sector.
As part of our 're:GENERATION' Flourishing Lives programme at Tate Exchange, we invited members of the public to take part in an envelope exchange, writing a message, poem or doodle to their 'future self' and swapping it with someone else's message for a playful and thought-provoking correspondence across the ages.
We recently attended the Arts Can Seminar by Dr Daisy Fancourt, Senior Research Associate/Wellcome Research Fellow at UCL, and were blown away by the research evidencing the impact that arts, creativity and cultural engagement has on physical and mental health.
