We are LiveKen

Here at LiveKen we’re passionate about helping others live simple, sustainable and meaningful lives. As we embark on our own journey towards a simple, sustainable and meaningful life, we share our insight and stories to help raise awareness, inspire and empower others to make similar changes with and without chronic illness. We work closely with local Councils, businesses and community groups to help support change in the wider community and encourage people to live a life that is meaningful to them by increasing understanding and empowering community action. We have over 10 years of experience working with businesses and local communities to create changes towards more sustainable actions, and have personal experience with living with invisible chronic illnesses which allows us to advocate for those with these conditions.

Our Services

We're here to help local government, businesses, community groups and individuals create a simple, sustainable and meaningful life.

Foggy Frog and the Pain Gang

Raising awareness of invisible illnesses. The Foggy Frog and the Pain Gang picture book is a useful tool for explaining invisible illness symptoms such as pain and fatigue.

Our Blog

We share stories about living simple, sustainable and meaningful lives, with and without chronic illness.

Our Values

We work and live by our values with a strong focus on community engagement, sustainability, and being open and honest.
