Ageing Well Torbay is a 6 year project, funded by The Big Lottery to reduce social isolation in the over 50 generation across Torbay.

Ageing Well aims to reconnect communities across Brixham, Paignton and Torquay, so everyone no matter what their age can:

  • Celebrate the skills stories and knowledge of people over the age of 50
  • Enable themselves and others to feel their lives have value and purpose
  • Involve everyone, (themselves, neighbours, friends and family) to make Torbay a positive place where everyone can feel included
  • Reconnect people with their friends and communities
  • Strengthen the voice of older people
