THE LIVED EXPERIENCE MOVEMENT

The Lived Experience Movement (also known as LEx Move) is a collective impact network connecting, supporting and strengthening the capacity of Lived Experience Leaders to help all our communities thrive.

OUR VALUES & PRINCIPLES

  • Leading with love, integrity and generosity.
  • We don’t own the movement—we connect, share, and collaborate.
  • We know that the experiences we live through bring wisdom that should be valued, just like other forms of knowledge, learning and practice.
  • Putting our wisdom to work to support people, communities and organisations to flourish.
  • Building a society and culture that prioritise relationships, trust, respect and dignity.  
  • Learning from the leadership of Elders past, present, and emerging.
