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.
The healthcare landscape is shifting. Whatever the motivation - whether economic considerations, a ‘more sustainable NHS’ or sheer desire to recognise the potential of measures beyond traditional ideas of medication - assumptions that had been firmly held are starting to fracture.
Flourishing Lives is delighted to welcome the Prime Minister’s decision to appoint a ministerial lead on loneliness. MP Tracey Crouch, the Minister for Sport and Civil Society, will see her role extended to include leading a cross-government group responsible for driving action on loneliness across all parts of government.
…Or even better (and the lesser known extension of Muhammad Ali’s famous quote)… work together like a swarm of honeybees to overheat your opponent… So, this entry is predominantly a thinly veiled excuse to share a great story that was just shared with me by a member at the Claremont Project...
