What We Offer
Great news! All of our support for employers and carers groups is now delivered online, enabling more people to benefit and have the chance to share experiences with others.
The Covid pandemic has put a new spotlight on the vulnerabibility of older people and caused additional worries for their families. We are tailoring our support to help with this.
Both our popular workshop programme, and our new offer 'The Final 15' are available as webinars as well as face-to-face. With 6 complementary topics, 'The Final 15' is proving inspiring and thought-provoking in helping people to plan for final years.
