Voices for Colourful Lives project – Borough Care

Partnership project with Borough Care to ensure residents and their families have a direct input into how services are designed and run.

Borough Care, a not for profit organisation, is the largest provider of care for older people in Stockport, operating eleven specialist care homes. It offers residential and day care, as well as ‘Active Recovery’ and short-stay respite services. Borough Care is dedicated to providing high quality, personalised care which does not take a one-size-fits-all approach. Their ethos is to help residents and their families to live ‘Life in Colour’.

Borough Care and Community Catalysts are excited to partner in this 3-year project with residents and their families. We will work together to find creative ways to engage and consult with people to develop ideas and suggestions for the way Borough Care operates.

We believe this project is ground-breaking and Community Catalysts are so excited to be working with Borough Care and the people it supports to learn, create, and develop new ways of working together.

Find out more about what happened in the first year of the project in this blog from Borough Care.

At Borough Care we are determined to take our commitment to Life in Colour even further – doing everything we can to make sure that each and every resident is able to live in a way, which reflects who they are: their unique experiences; their abilities; and their hopes and dreams. This commitment runs through everything that we do, and we are pleased to announce a new, ground-breaking project, which will help us do better still.
