Welcome to Belong Chester

Already an award-winning care village, Belong Chester’s state-of-the-art facilities, canalside city location and pioneering approach to intergenerational living are combining to promote wellbeing, active lifestyles and, above all, a vibrant, welcoming community.

Belong Chester is based on a village model, with households for 24-hour care, apartments for independent living and a village centre with a range of facilities to be enjoyed by all residents, customers and members of the wider community. These facilities include a bistro, hair salon, specialist gym and, for the first time, a fully integrated children’s nursery. In 2023, Belong Chester won the prestigious national LaingBuisson award for Innovation in Care based on the outcomes being achieved by this intergenerational living setting.

A special message from The Nursery in Belong operators, Ready Generations:

"We are extremely thrilled that our wonderful creative lead and Sankofa Songsters choir maestro, Amanda Wrigley(Live The Beat) was a finalist last night at the national Music and Drama Education Awards in London for her work with nurseries, schools and care facilities. Although, not the ultimate winner, Amanda’s work and its impact were highly commended.

The Music & Drama Education Awards 2024, celebrate the extraordinary contribution made by professionals, schools, companies, charities and other organisations to the lives of others through the medium of these two key performing arts.

The two sectors which these awards celebrate – performing arts and education – have faced unprecedented challenges in recent years. The people who provide performing arts education in the UK have continued undaunted to produce exceptional work and to support innumerable people of all ages. These awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate those achievements.

We are so very proud of Amanda’s achievements and everything she does with us at the Nursery in Belong and Belong Chester."

Congratulations, Amanda, from everyone at Belong! 👏
