At Breathworks, helping underserved communities is close our heart and part of the work that we do as a charity. This year, we started our Breathworks Seed Funding initiative to mobilise the teachers we have trained who are creating positive change in their communities through innovative projects. This year, we awarded funding to 5 incredible projects, including Lucy Livesey’s.
Lucy is a mental health nurse who has been running a Mindfulness for Grief support group for the baby loss community in Oldham. We are delighted to share her story and what she plans to do with her funding to help more families in the area here.
Breathworks has been teaching mindfulness-based approaches for managing pain, illness and stress since 2001. We are UK-based charity with a mission to make mindfulness accessible to those in hardship through providing bursaries for our programmes and funding for community projects.
