LIFEbeat was formed in 2009 with the mission to improve the wellbeing of young people through building creative communities and a sense of belonging. This is achieved through personal development programmes which give skills and inspiration to overcome the challenges young people face, navigate the divisions in society and lead confident, healthy and purposeful lives. LIFEbeat's approach weaves together key different essential practices: creativity and arts practice, focus on relationships and group/community work, personal storytelling, and reflective practice. LIFEbeat also offers professional training for youth workers, teachers, coaches, trainers and therapists.
