Reducing loneliness and isolation amongst people aged 50+ in Torbay

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

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