Welcome to Life Story Network CIC
We are a registered Community Interest Company with social objectives, set up for the benefit of communities and the people who live in them.
We are here to help develop, 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, transport providers, schools and advocacy groups. 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 and narrative practices enable 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.
