Conversation 1: Live

What does it really mean to live a good life?

A good life means something different to all of us. Here's what Emily told us:

"What does living a good life mean to me? Having as much independence as possible. Having freedom of choice. Having the right support in place. Having information in an accessible format."

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to feel valued for who they are.

That's why we believe it's time for a Big Conversation about what it really means to live a good life, and how we can all make little steps towards feeling more happy and fulfilled.

‘What does it mean to live a good life?'

Once you've downloaded your balance chart, you'll see which areas of your life make you happy and which might need a little more work.
