HELP is at hand for retiring residents of Tower Hamlets after the council was chosen as the first to try out a new retirement programme.

The Retire Ready Programme will be run by Tower Hamlets council with the aim of helping residents plan and prepare for their retirement.

Barbara Disney, Commissioning Manager for older people, hopes the programme will ease residents' fears over their next step after retirement.

Four different programmes will be run throughout June and July, each with a two-day workshop and one to one support for residents.

Activities on offer to residents in Tower Hamlets once they retire include volunteering, further education, part-time works and leisure pursuits.

To enrol on a Retire Ready programme, for free, call 020 3093 7539 or email info@mangrovescic.org.uk.
