Booking essential.
Book your place online via Eventbriteemail phone 01803 212638.

Have you ever stopped to think what you wish you had known before you retired? Downsized? Before you became a carer or your mobility changed? Or are there things you are thinking about now, before you retire? What advice would you give others?

We want to pull together an ‘experts by experience guide’ that revolves around Next Steps…preparing for later life. We need a variety of voices and experiences so what you think is important.

We will be holding events to explore the subject and gather your thoughts – we want to curate a guide that will be a legacy for Torbay and for future generations.

Interested in being involved? For more info on the Next Steps project, email David Gledhill at:, or phone 01803 212638.
