We're delighted to announce a partnership that the St Joseph’s Islington Bereavement Service have with Flourishing Lives.

The Islington Bereavement Service is partnering with ‘re:GENERATION – Flourishing Lives at Tate Exchange’ which is a four-day festival featuring free events, activities, performances and talks, celebrating the creativity of older people and connecting generations through art.

We will be part of this through our photographic contribution called ‘Walking Alongside’ where beautiful photos of those involved in Islington Bereavement Service Peer-to-Peer Support will showcase how far-reaching the impact of the programme has on the lives of those bereaved, and the community members supporting them.

If you’re able to make the exhibition, please do show your support for this, which is a wonderful accolade to the good work that Islington Bereavement Service provide.

The award winning Islington Bereavement Service offers support for adults living in Islington and/or registered with a GP in Islington. The service is for people who have experienced the death of a family member or another important person in their life. Run by St Joseph’s Hospice and a team of trained volunteers, this service offers emotional, social and practical bereavement support.
 
In Walking Alongside, photographer Marie Hargreaves documents the stories of people who have recently engaged in the service's peer-to-peer support, capturing the incredible impact that the Islington Bereavement Service has had on the lives of both the community members and the volunteers who walk alongside them. 

The installation will also include a short film about Islington Bereavement Service directed by Terry Thomas at Bubble Gump Images.
 
The Islington Bereavement Service won the National Council for Palliative Care’s Bereavement Project of the Year Award 2017. For more information about the service, please visit: www.stjh.org.uk/islingtonbereavementservice.
