Buddying and


Commissioned by Brightlife Cheshire Community Development Trusts exciting New Buddying and Befriending Scheme commenced in October 2018 and will run until March 2020.  The scheme aims to reduce loneliness and isolation amongst the over 50s across Cheshire, specifically covering the 4 areas of Chester, Malpas, Tarporley and Winsford.

The scheme will provide Volunteer Buddies and / or Befrienders to those who maybe experiencing loneliness or isolation, and will support them to improve their lives.  This could be supporting someone to gain the  confidence to leave the house for the first time, to join clubs or undertake new activities and to become more involved in the communities around them.  Or quite simply it could be just calling round for a cup of tea and a chat.

If you would like more information or you would like to get involved as a Volunteer Buddy or Befriender please contact any one of the team
