Welcome to Life Story Network
So, what's it all about............
We are here to help deliver and promote improvements to the quality of care and support received by those who may be marganilised through ill-health, or social circumstance, by working closely with care providers, carers, housing associations, schools and advocacy groups.
What we do isn’t Reminiscence, it also isn’t Memory Box, but it is Life Story Work and it is so, so much more. It is about restoring and recognising the very things which make a real difference to us all as unique individuals, relationships.
Excellent care and support is based on building relationships. This involves recognising the uniqueness of the person and their life experiences, which influence not only who they are and how they behave, but also their hopes and wishes for the future. Life story work enables us to see people as individuals in the context of their relationships with others, thus preserving their unique identity and enabling their rights to be respected.
Our programmes look to educate, empower and enable in order to encourage and embrace relationships built on empathy.
It’s what we at Life Story Network call our 6e’s™, it’s why we do what we do and it’s what we know matters!
