Help and support for older workers

Working into your 50s and early 60s and, if you wish, after State Pension age can help support your financial, health and social well-being into later life.

If you’ve been looking for work for a while, have been recently made redundant, or are thinking of changing your career, Gov.uk has some useful information ranging from developing your skills, flexible working and self-employment to managing health and disability (external website).

Plus think about refreshing your skills. The Skills Toolkit (external website) has free, high quality digital and numeracy courses from a range of providers such as Google Digital Garage, Lloyds Bank and Open University.
