We are very grateful to Brightlife for all the work they have done in Winsford. They have brought together so many different organisations to help those who are on their own, those who have limited resources… and we’re all very, very thankful for all that they do. Winsford Town Mayor, Cllr, Gina Lewis
I’d like to say how much I’ve enjoyed working with Brightlife over the last 4 years and how much all of the GP practices recognise the sterling work they are doing to help tackle loneliness and bring back a good deal of fun, enjoyment and purpose into peoples’ lives and thereby making our jobs a lot easier. Dr Achla Damania. Swanlow Medical Centre, Winsford.
“The team at Weavervale are very appreciative of the good work you are doing for our patients. We have been referring many of our frail elderly patients to your Falls Prevention Service and can confirm the benefits to our patients in terms of the good advice and support they receive, the signposting to appropriate services, and the friendship and support they receive directly from your team. Our practice has benefited directly in terms of the very thorough assessments you undertake and feedback to us, which allows us to meet our NHS targets. We would have no hesitation in recommending this service to other practices.” Dr Michael Fallon, NHS Vale Royal CCG
“Social isolation has a big impact on wellbeing, so the fact that Brightlife is running a social prescribing scheme in Winsford is fantastic. We at the town council are very supportive of Brightlife being here, and we look forward to working with them in the future.” Winsford Mayor, Cllr Ailsa Gaskill-Jones
“Brightlife offers an exciting opportunity for Malpas to find some new ways to combat loneliness and isolation. Given so many in our local community are over 50, this is an extremely important initiative that will make a real difference to the lives of people in the village.” John Webb, Chairman of Malpas Parish Council, Trustee Age UK Cheshire
“Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is committed to supporting older people in their communities. It is encouraging to see so many free activities being organised at the Brightlife Festival. We hope these events encourage people to get involved, have fun and make new friends. We are looking forward to supporting events on National Older People’s Day.” Nick Evans, Head of Prevention, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service
“The Friday group gives me something to look forward to. And its not just me … I noticed one of the men used to walk into the group with his head down, now he walks with his head held high!” Ruth Tilston, Malpas.
“I never felt settled until Brightlife came to Malpas – and now I’m doing so much. I wasn’t ready to be sat in a room being told what to do!” Joan Merridith, Malpas
Thank you Louise for coming to my home and telling me about all these exciting activities you have organised. I’ve got the community car scheme block booked to ensure I am here every week.” Audrey Thomas, Tilston
