A club for recently retired men to use their skills in the community
It is well documented that people retiring from office-based and professional jobs often lose the relationships and networks they built up during their working life, after they retire. Men are particularly at risk of losing these connections and as such becoming isolated, bored, and losing self-esteem despite still having useful skills and experience.
The After Work Club is a new start-up to mobilise retired men to use their skills to make positive changes in their wider community. Men who join are able to reclaim a sense of personal value and purpose, reduce their risk of social isolation and equip themselves to be better able to face the challenges of ageing. The After Work Club is focused on people who are retired from business with, for example, problem-solving skills, rather than DIY or other more manual tasks. It’s first trial is starting in Spring 2013.
