Older People


In Norfolk the proportion of people at or above the current state retirement age is well above the regional and national average. Due to a range of factors, including isolation, poor health and low income, many older people in the county struggle to enjoy a happy and independent old age.

For many, the support offered in their local community is an important lifeline, with lunch clubs, social groups and community transport schemes helping older people to improve their quality of life where it may otherwise be limited.

However, retired people also represent a high proportion of the county’s most active and committed volunteers, making a difference to their local community by offering their time, knowledge and skills.
