By Older People for Older People
Led by Age UK Cheshire, Brightlife is a partnership between several local organisations from across the voluntary, public and private sectors. It is one of fourteen Ageing Better programmes - a £78 million programme set-up by The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.
Since April 2015, Brightlife has commissioned, delivered and evaluated a diverse range of services designed to address the issues surrounding loneliness and social isolation faced by older people in Cheshire West and Chester. There are now hundreds of commissioned activities f
Now, as the end of its five-year lifespan approaches, Brightlife is collating the results of this ‘test-and-learn’ approach so that commissioners, service providers and communities alike can build on the experience, knowledge and legacy it leaves behind.
