About SALT

We are a group of people in the middle of life who want to go on learning and developing throughout the rest of our lives.

Our aims are: 

  • to recognise and value individual and collective experiences of the transition into retirement.  
  • to support interdisciplinary projects and research into enabling people to choose how to live as they become older.

We are working to develop links with other organisations and individuals towards providing a series of workshops and conferences over the next three years to bring people together to share information and develop new approaches and policies in line with our aims.

We base our approach on the recommendation of the Gulbenkian supported report: Next steps: Life transitions and retirement in the 21st century (2012). This recommends that we ” … develop forums to further research and flesh out our understanding of life transitions, and potential responses to them.”

Please contact us if you would like to discuss how you or your organisation might be involved, or would like news of progress.
