A legacy of learning

Over the course of five years, Brightlife gathered and developed valuable knowledge and best practice about what works to improve the lives of older people in Cheshire West and Chester.

This key learning is presented here in five sections; each representing a vital part of the ongoing cycle of planning, action and reflection that is required to create meaningful, enduring change for older people and their communities.
