lifetime Connected lifetime – Healthy Ageing

Keeping active is the key to staying fit, having fun and keeping independent.

Sometimes life events can affect our social connections and can lead to loneliness and isolation and have an adverse effect on our mental wellbeing.

Through LifeTime you can join in with a wide range of opportunities to help you keep connected, keep learning and give back to the community.

lifetime is open to all over 50 in Warrington and runs over 50 activities a week from the hub at the Gateway on Sankey Street and in community locations across Warrington, is independent, not-for-profit and free to join.

Lifetime Fun was officially launched, under the banner of Warrington Housing Association, in June 2013 following the complete makeover of the centre next to the Gateway in Warrington town centre. The centre is the heart of the LifeTime network and the building was been transformed to include a new function room, craft room and new showering facilities. A café area has been formed in the centre with a contemporary new kitchen, redecoration and introduction of new furniture throughout.

The centre opened its doors to the public shortly after launch and membership has risen quickly since then, surpassing all expectations.

The centre is open Monday to Friday for casual drop-ins, information, computer suite and a wide programme of affordable activities and classes. Trips and social activities are extremely popular and well attended by members, enhancing their social life and keeping them connected. Such has been the success of certain activities that Lifetime fun has branched out into other locations across the town.

Lifetime Fun offers support for other voluntary groups providing services to older people to get support and connect who use the centre for resources, meetings and discussion.

Through our work we engage with partners and where they offer complementary services they use the centre for drop-in, information sessions and provision of their information to members.

Volunteers are key to the success of Lifetime Fun. Our volunteers are supported with training, supervision and resources and their voice is heard through the volunteer forum and regular meetings.
