'Life. Loss. Learning. Legacy' (4Ls) is a 12-week, peer-led storytelling and coaching service which supports people to reduce the isolation they often feel as a result of significant life-changing experiences including bereavement, end of life or significant changes in their health. The groups meet every week to share stories and explore the positive learning and legacies they can positively build on from their lived experiences.
To date, we have worked with storytellers from the ages of 18 to 100 years old from diverse backgrounds. They have co-produced and shared over 120 video stories on subjects including the bereavement of partners, parents, children and friends; sudden and protracted deaths, death by suicide and the impacts of death within the contexts of gender, faith, economic deprivation, sexuality, diverse abilities, age and cultural heritage.
