About Us

We believe that everyone deserves a ‘good life’. The current systems rarely deliver that outcome, especially for those with complex or challenging reputations.

LivesthroughFriends brings together a group of very skilled and talented individuals and organisations, that have complementary knowledge, skills and networks. As a collective we have been delivering and sustaining great lives for people for over half a century.  

We work with citizens, communities and services to achieve this by creating: 

Real Citizenship

Building kindness, relationships and inclusion into people’s lives

Inclusive Communities

Rebalancing the relationship between Civil society, communities and public services

System Change

Helping commissioners to create a more supportive system

Clinical Competence

Addressing behaviours in a progressive way (in a low arousal way).

LivesthroughFriends was established in 2007 as a Community Interest Company by Bob Rhodes & Colin Campbell with the explicit aim of assisting people who need social care support to ‘self-direct’. Since then we have supported many people out of hospitals and institutions to get their good life.

There is Much More To Life Than Services.
