Limelight is an extraordinary project which lies at the heart of the Old Trafford neighbourhood. A project that integrates aspirational housing for older people into a development which also contains a wide range of community facilities, including a GP surgery and associated health facilities, a library, space to support social enterprise start-ups, a community café, event space, a 40 place registered children’s nursery, sports and recreation facilities. A single development, which places older people at the very heart of an active, supportive and vibrant community.

Completed in December 2017 for Trafford Housing Trust, Limelight will be one of the first truly integrated hubs to be delivered in the UK and is a possible model for future age friendly developments, providing a flexible, affordable and practical way forward which tackles the looming crisis in housing and caring for an ever increasing ageing population.
