Ageism is a growing problem in our society, but retirement doesn’t have to mean packing away skills you’ve spent a lifetime learning. Embracing their new-found freedom, we speak to people who have focused their attention on their true passion – or discovered new ways to use their skills. From supporting their community in accessing food banks and mental health care, to helping students achieve their learning goals. Retirement is the next phase of life, and they’re seizing every opportunity and showing us we can set new goals at any age.

There's no age limit for success
Negative stereotypes of ageing are all around us, in advertising, the media and even internalised within older people themselves. These prejudices can result in serious consequences, discouraging the valuable contribution that people can make to our society when they have more time and experience to offer in retirement.
New skills in retirement
We share the stories of people who carved out new careers in later life, proving it’s never too late to retrain and take a different path.
