Caring Companions 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.
Caring Companions provided support for people over 50 from volunteers who had a learning disability (supported with a staff member), offering companionship and help with everyday tasks to older people in the Northwich area.
Caring Companions was delivered by Caring Companions Cheshire with an award of £16,130.
