We strive to raise the bar in services for older people by sharing innovation and best practice, developing the sector by providing free training and workshops for service providers and practitioners.

We offer group and one-to-one reflective practice sessions, led by trained counsellors, providing arts and wellbeing practitioners with a vital structure for emotional support and in-depth reflection on working practice.

Combatting social isolation and providing older people with opportunities to connect with each other, express themselves and engage in high quality arts and wellbeing provision is at the core of our work.

Flourishing Lives provides a platform for arts and wellbeing organisations to showcase their work, and for older people to celebrate their creative abilities and achievements.

Our Intergenerational Forum offers an informal space for arts & wellbeing providers to meet and share ideas around developing intergenerational practice in their services.

As a central hub for the sector, Flourishing Lives helps to unify the collective knowledge and expertise of providers and practitioners, and amplify the voices of older people.

Flourishing Lives is a vital and vibrant connector for the older people’s arts and wellbeing sector, offering opportunities for providers and practitioners to meet, share best practice, forge working partnerships, and cultivate a sense of community and proactive collaboration for the benefit of older people.

We offer a one day CPD-Accredited training course called ‘Mattering: An Introduction to the Relational Approach’.
