General Public

At Age & Opportunity, we believe that life is for living. You are living in a time of unprecedented healthy longevity. Now that we have more healthy years to live, what are you going to do with yours?

We want to inspire you to reach your full potential as you age. We do that through education, through sports and through the arts. We are continually finding new ways to engage, to motivate and to support people in turning the period from 50 onwards into an adventure. Join in.
