The Electrical Industries Charity has launched its Pensioner Support Programme to help retired colleagues in the electrical industry to live a full life while supporting them with any financial struggles that come their way.
Retirement is traditionally the time when people stop working, but they do not stop living. Retirement can be seen as a new phase in life which can bring a lot of new and exciting opportunities, but there could be a host of new challenges too.
Currently, it is estimated that 40% of all people aged 65 or over in the UK have a limiting long-standing illness. For many individuals, being retired means a reduced income which means they may struggle when paying household bills, debts or any unexpected expenses such as replacing a broken appliance.
The Pensioner Support Programme is designed to assist retired people and their families in the electrical industry by giving them a way to connect with fellow retired industry colleagues as well as helping them out with any financial issues that they may be facing.
