Problem

People aged 16-24 are the loneliest people in the UK. Retired professionals are looking for ways to continue using their skills post-retirement.

HMW. . . Help retired professionals stay connected and fulfilled in retirement?

Solution

EQuip brings these two populations together for their mutual benefit. Students gain access to knowledge from someone with decades of work experience, and retirees become more actively valued in society again.
