Ageing Well Torbay

Older Persons’ Assembly
We are hosting meetings around Torbay to discuss and plan the formation of the Torbay Older Persons’ Assembly. The assembly will be a platform for people in later life to share their views, and be part of decision making processes. If you’d like to be involved, and come to one of our upcoming meetings, call us on 01803 212638, or email


Ageing Well Torbay is for anyone over the age of 50 who lives in the local area.

If you feel lonely or isolated we can help to reconnect you with your local community and help you to meet new friends.

Or perhaps you would like to help us make Torbay a better place for older people to live in?

We need people just like you to sit on our programme board, to join the Older People’s Assembly, to decide what to put on at our yearly Ageing Well Festival and Symposium, as well as to help us to create interesting newsletters and posters. You can also share your skills and knowledge through your neighbourhood Timebank.

Ageing Well Torbay is a 6 year project, funded by Big Lottery, which aims to reconnect communities and reduce social isolation amongst the 50+ generation across Torbay.

Older people from across Torbay 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.

We believe that old age should be viewed as an opportunity. That older people should be valued and able to contribute to their communities.
