Since its launch in July 2018, the Post-Retirement Opportunities Project (PRO) has offered support to over 175 people who are approaching retirement, recently retired or facing redundancy. Events held in Bristol over the past nine months have covered a wide range of areas including volunteering, learning, working in later life, and general retirement planning.
LinkAge Network are delighted to have been chosen as Almeda’s charity of the year for 2019. They kick off this support when three members of their team will fly the LinkAge Network flag at the Bristol 10k in May.
