A NEW scheme is being introduced in London’s East End to help people prepare for retirement.

Tower Hamlets Council has been chosen as the first London local authority to try the Retire Ready’ programmes after two pilots in the North of England.

The programmes, which match personal interests and circumstances with opportunities in the East End, include a two-day workshop, followed by one-to-one support over six to eight weeks.

Four programmes are planned:

Programme-1 on June 21 and 28 at Bethnal Green’s Sundial Centre, 11 Shipton Street, from 9am to 5.30pm

Programme-2 on June 26 and July 3 at the Whitechapel Idea Store, 321 Whitechapel Road, 9am-5pm

Programme-3 on June 29 and July 6 at Shadwell’s Sonali Gardens, 79 Tarling Street, 9am-5.30pm, and

Programme 4 on July 10 and July 17, also at Whitechapel’s Idea Store, 9am-5pm.

Those about to retire or those who have already made the leap in the past 12 months can enrol by phone on 020-3093 7539, or by email here.
