Ageing Well Torbay is a six year project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, which aims to reconnect communities and reduce social isolation amongst the 50+ populous across Torbay.

People over the age of 50 have told us they are isolated due to retirement, bereavement, low income, poor health and mobility, lack of transport, and fear of leaving the house.

From work carried out by our delivery partners over the last three years, we know that there are isolated people aged 50+ in every neighbourhood of Torbay. We believe that older age should be viewed as an opportunity and that people over 50 should be valued and able to contribute to their communities.
