Doors open at Belong Chester

6 October 2022

Located on City Road in Chester, enjoying views of the historic canal, is a brand new Belong village which celebrates intergenerational experiences at its very core.

Belong Chester has officially opened and now offers a mix of independent living apartments and households where 24-hour support, including dementia and nursing care, is provided. All residents, as well as members of the public, can also enjoy access to a vibrant village centre with a range of facilities including a bistro, specialist gym, hair salon, therapy room and entertainment venue with licensed bar.

The 25-place Nursery in Belong provides a high-quality care and learning environment for children from birth to five years, six days a week. It is operated by national charity, Ready Generations, and village and nursery teams work closely together to create a truly shared environment where children and older people can learn together and build an active, intentional and collaborative community that includes every generation.

Belong Chief Executive, Martin Rix, said:

“The beauty of the village model is that we are able to offer a range of spaces and experiences, and give people the choice to join in as much or as little of village life as they choose. This is crucial in ensuring residents continue to feel connected and integrated within society, and we are particularly excited that Belong Chester will have this very special and new element for us, which is the integration of a children’s nursery.”
