Devon County Council

Time for Life (TfL) is a free community enabling service available to older adults aged 65 and over across Devon who have become socially isolated and/ or excluded as a result of bereavement, illness, disability, carer responsibility– or a range of factors unique to their situation. It aims to support individuals to regain confidence through meaningful social activities, re-engage with the community (or engage with a new one after relocation) and build up the independent living skills to prevent isolation in the future.
