About Us

By Older People for Older People

Brightlife is an ambitious partnership with older people at its heart, working to reduce loneliness and social isolation amongst the over 50s and in old age in Cheshire West and Chester, supporting people as they enter old age in Cheshire.

We support a range of innovative and engaging projects, activities and networks that help create a better life for older people across the borough.

Brightlife was created in April 2015, with £5m funding from the Big Lottery’s Ageing Better Programme. Led by Age UK Cheshire, we represent a range of local agencies from across the voluntary, public & private sectors in Cheshire West and Chester.
