Age of Opportunity

Watch our new project film to hear from the participants and team members involved in this project which is transforming the lives of disadvantaged people across Lancashire:


The Age of Opportunity is a project designed specifically to meet the needs of over 50s who would like to work but are unable to without additional skills or support. A core focus for this project is supporting older people who are most at risk of social exclusion.

Under this project, our ‘Navigators’ work with participants to understand their interests, aspirations and barriers to work or training. Each individual is then directed within our thematic partner network for specialist support that will help them to engage in work readiness activity.

The Navigator team at Age UK Greater Lancashire is the first point of contact for participants under this project.
