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.
We are delighted to announce that Flourishing Lives has launched our London-wide reflective practice groups for arts, health and wellbeing professionals working within community contexts. Whether you work in a day centre, arts organisation, clinical setting, outreach initiative or in freelance community arts, you are very welcome to join us.
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.
Age Action Alliance and Flourishing Lives invite you to our free workshop providing practical support for services for older people. This workshop will focus on managing behaviours that challenge in arts and health settings, as we seek to establish a blueprint for inclusive practice across the sector.
