This weekend Pete spoke on a panel at the launch event of LExMove at the Manchester International Festival. The Lived Experience Movement (Lex Move) is a collective impact network, connecting, supporting and strengthening the capacity of lived experience leaders to help all our communities thrive.
I’m really excited to be part of such an amazing group of people who collectively, are determined to recognise the talent we have in our communities, and create platforms for talented people with lived experience to shine as future leaders in our society. We need to address the imbalance in our power structures and ensure that the wisdom and experience that exists in our communities, is utilised to shape a brighter, more connected future.
It was a fantastic event showing how lived experience enriches the ability of leaders in their sector. Pete is an Elder of LexMove and more information can be found at www.lexmovement.org
