TimeOut / TimeOut


TimeOut is an alternative to the current pension scheme of our generation - we think of it as the Work and Play Scheme; a transitional space between Ageing in Place and Place Detachment which provides the option of “Ageing out of Place”. It’s a space which creates a balance between work and play, shifts the time and rhythm of your lifestyle, as well as gives individuals opportunities to step out of their repetitious working life to be involved with TimeOut Volunteer Activities. TimeOut acts as a natural transition and it gives an opportunity to build independence, maintaining proactive ageing and positive growth of physical and mental health
