What’s On

Ageing Well help to support a number of events, groups and activities across Torbay, working with our delivery partners to provide and develop opportunities for socialising, to find out more about what is available locally in terms of services and organisations, and to enable people to get involved in their communities.

Please note: We have since transferred a lot of information on upcoming events and regular activities to www.torbaytogether.org.uk to integrate more with the community and our delivery partners, hence why we no longer have an extensive What’s On list here on the Ageing Well Torbay website.

Torquay TOFA Meeting

TOFA Logo semitransWe are excited to announce the first meeting of the Torquay Over 50’s Assembly at Central Church on Thursday, August 1st between 2.30 and 4.30 pm. 

We are hoping to welcome as many people as possible to discuss the ideas, issues and concerns that were raised at our launch event back in April.

We have also invited some local organisations along to give 10-minute presentations addressing some of the priorities you have already identified as well as discussing other topics of your choice. There will also be the opportunity to join focus groups on specific areas such as housing, environment, employment, communication, social activity, health and transport.

To be the representative voice of the Over 50’s in the bay, we need to be sure we have as many people as possible signed up. If you have family or friends that might be interested, bring them along. So please put the date in the diary and help us spread the word. This is a fantastic opportunity for the over 50’s in the Bay if we all work together.

To ensure we have a good idea of how many people are coming, we’re asking everyone intending of coming along to book on, which you can do by booking online on Eventbrite from the link below, or by contacting us by phoning 01803 212638, or email us at ageingwell@torbaycdt.org.uk
