The Brightening Lives project was funded as part of Brightlife’s ‘Bright Ideas’ strand. This fund encouraged local groups, voluntary organisations and businesses to come forward with ideas to reduce isolation and loneliness for older people within areas or communities of interest.
Brightening Lives was ran by trained volunteers in a variety of settings such as care homes, sheltered housing and community centres.
Brightening Lives with Shared Reading was delivered by The Reader with an award of £19,955.
