Growing old disgracefully
Old, not boring!
Just a little bit cheeky
Not over the hill; just admiring the view from the top!
Keep Brighton Weird
For growing old, however you want to
Time to Brighton up your week
Young, rude & outrageous at heart!
Lifelines is about growing old and still living your best life, enjoying doing what you want to do. Maybe slowing down a little, but definitely not stopping! Keep doing things you’ve enjoyed doing your whole life or throw caution to the wind and try something different. We’re all about that.
Our volunteers host group activities for those 50+ across the city, a chance to connect, learn something new, make friends, and maybe have some fun too.
We also have 1-2-1 services where our volunteers support those 50+ to get to grips with modern tech with free tablet and internet (Silver Circles), help people get back out shopping, or accompany them to health appointments (Healthlink).

"I have found the service offered by Lifelines absolutely brilliant. It has helped me cope, both practically and emotionally, with the challenging situation we are in at the present time."
Freda, Healthlink Member, February 2019
"This really is a Lifeline using this service. Before this there were times I just couldn’t go out."
Not Just Participating
It’s not just about participating, though. You could be lead your own group, support another volunteer to run theirs, help someone get online or support someone to a health appointment. Find our more about what we do, or may see what volunteering you can do.
