Volunteer, and make a difference

Volunteering is a great way to find a meaningful life in retirement. Join our Volunteering teams who support older men and disadvantaged youth in our communities. Volunteers regularly contact Members who are doing it tough, are isolated, less mobile, and lonely.

Navigate Ageing Well

As aging throws up many challenges, we help men connect to local support services and resources to help navigate ageing. This includes issues such as transport, aged care, health services, elder abuse, among others.

I enjoy visiting guys in Aged Care, the stories they tell are so great.

John, TOMNET Member

I get to see my mates each week and have a chat about how we are going, this keeps me on the right path and I wouldn’t be without it.

Neil, TOMNET Member

TOMNET saved me. I was lost after retiring and had no idea what to do or what I wanted out of my life. I really did give me options.

Paul, TOMNET Member

Want more from retirement?

 

While some men do retirement well, many are unprepared for the changes retirement brings. We encourage men to talk about their retirement experiences, the ups and downs, the good times and the bad times.

Learning the skills to manage the challenges of retirement helps us to navigate this transition positively. We help men explore what they enjoy and encourage them to find meaning and purpose in retirement.

We do things differently, our program helps you become an active and vibrant member of the community. We support you to find activities, both social and volunteering, that suit your lifestyle and health situation.

If you are struggling with retirement, need new ideas, or just need to talk, TOMNET can meet with you either face to face, via telephone, or zoom to discuss your current retirement plans and help you find your pathway to a meaningful retirement.

The conversation could change your life.
What are you waiting for?
