What does ‘Livability’ mean to you?
What is the Christian Ethos of Livability?
We believe in the power of community to help people live full and flourishing lives. Every single person’s story matters and we’re celebrating some of the stories from across our community.
At Livability, we are committed to living out ‘hope’ in very practical and grounded ways. This film explains how our approach models an inclusive Christian ethos, welcoming people of all faiths and none where actions speak louder than words.
What does it mean to work at Livability?
Livability and Morgan Lovell – creating a fully accessible national office
At Livability, we believe drawing people and resources together makes a community thrive. We asked our staff, supporters and friends how being part of the Livability community is enabling people to live full and flourishing lives.
After nearly 20 years, Livability has moved its national office team from old premises in Shoreditch, to a new office space on the Greenwich Peninsula. Livability tasked the building team of Morgan Lovell – the UK’s leading office interior design, fit out and refurbishment specialist – with creating a working space optimised for collaboration, inclusion and accessibility.
The work we do
Friendship Really Matters – help us connect people with their community
Share Your story – everyone is unique and their story is valuable
People’s lives and wellbeing do better when they enjoy positive relationships. In our new film, some of the people that use our services share why friendship really matters to them.
Sharing stories is a powerful way in which people can develop connections and express needs and aspirations. In this film, the people that live at Livability Bradbury Court, give their views in a Share Your Story workshop.
What barriers to the community do people face?
Why is community so important?
It’s not the disabled person that makes a person disabled, it’s the barriers society puts up. We want to tackle these head on.
Life isn’t just about health and security; it’s about relationships, who you are and knowing you have a role in society. Watch our film about why community is so important.
