I work in the public sector and was very interested to stumble across this informative forum. I am 47 and starting to consider my retirement options but feel there is a lack of advice/information on how to successfully transition into retirement particularly in the areas of finding purpose, creating a new identity, building new social networks and creating boundaries in terms of caring responsibilities. As a result, I am considering setting up a series of workshops and events with guest speakers in central London for those who are approaching retirement or who are recently retired. To make sure I am addressing the right needs, I would really appreciate any feedback at all you can supply on the below questions. What are the biggest challenges (other than financial) that you wish you had had advice on before retiring? If you are still working, what worries you most about retirement (other than financial) If interested, would you prefer to attend weekend or evening events on this topic? All feedback gratefully received.
