Our Mission

To continue to be the No 1 'go to' organisation for over 50s in Torbay.

Our principles

Values and principles underpin what we do, why we do it, and guide how we work to achieve our mission. Our underlying principles are:

  • Ageism is unacceptable: we are against all forms of unfair discrimination, and challenge unfair treatment on grounds of age.
  • All people have the right to make decisions about their lives: we help older people to discover and exercise these rights.
  • People less able to help themselves should be offered support: we seek to support older people to live their lives with dignity.
  • Diversity is valued in all that we do: we recognise the diversity of older people and their different needs, choices, cultures and values.It is only through working together that we can use our local, regional and national presence to the greatest effect.
