The Beth Johnson Foundation and the Association for Education and Ageing (AEA) are delighted to announce a working partnership to promote the role of adult learning to support positive ageing.The partnership arrangement will identify our most significant ‘touching points’ and use these as the basis to develop a plan of joint activities to further the aim and objectives of both organisations and to jointly identify appropriate sources of funding to take the planned activities forward.Lynne Wealleans, the Programme Lead for England at the Beth Johnson Foundation, said ‘We are very happy to be in a partnership with the AEA as we have worked together over a number of years to promote the importance of adult learning in supporting a positive ageing experience. We are looking forward to identifying opportunities to work together in the future and these will be announced through our websites’.

I believe that education is an important element in living contentedly in retirement and am pleased that there are opportunities to do this in my area at subsidised costs. I have found that the W.E.A. and local colleges do good work in this respect and there are various clubs and societies which it can be very enjoyable to join. Voluntary work is worth considering too, in that it does help some people in the community and can be very satisfying as well as being an opportunity to develop new skills.
