MyTime is all about helping you get more from your retirement. It provides friendship, information and volunteering opportunities to help make life more rewarding, enriching and exciting.

It’s open to anyone aged 50 and over, whether you want to get out and meet people, make a difference in your community, or just catch up with the latest advice and news on later life.

MyTime is the brainchild of Simon Jones and Tom Chesher who saw the potential for retired people to put their skills and experience to good use and help worthy causes.

Of course, MyTime understands that not every retired person can afford to give their time for free. So the plan is to add a new element in the future that offers paid, casual and part-time work within communities – that draws on retired people’s interests and expertise.

If you like the idea of MyTime, please spread the word. Or if you have any feedback, we’d love to hear it. Please just email us at

And watch this space for more updates.

MyTime is here to make your life more rewarding and fulfilling. Whether it’s posting jobs, sharing advice or forming groups, we think everyone should be free to share – but we do have a few rules we must all follow:

  • Please don’t make personal attacks
  • Don’t post anything that breaks the law
  • Please, no spamming or trolling
  • You can report any of the above to us using the report button above each post.

We will not allow content to be seen or read that may offend, threaten or incite unlawful activity. But it’s our policy to keep intervention to a minimum. If we spot anything that breaks the rules, we will delete it. And if you spot anything, please let us know.

    We do not guarantee that the Site will be available at any particular time or for any period of time. From time to time, we may restrict access to all or part of the Site to Users who have registered with us as Members.

    When using the Site, you must at all times comply with these Terms. You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Site and for all connection and other charges incurred in using the Site.  You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access the Site through your internet connection are aware of these Terms, and that they comply with them.

    1.3 Age restriction

    The Site is intended for use by retired individuals aged 50 or over, or by adult representatives of organisations [or individuals] that wish to bring volunteering or work opportunities to the attention of such individuals or to provide them with advice.  As such, the Site is only intended for use by individuals aged 18 years or older.

    Accordingly, the Site is not directed to minors under the age of 18, and we shall not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under 18.  No information should be submitted or posted to or on the Site by anyone under the age of 18.

    1.4 Registration

    1.4.1 Requirement to register. To access and use certain Services via the Site, you will need to register as a Member. An Account allows you to create and maintain a personal profile and to use certain Services on the Site.

    What about registering as an organisation such as a charity or as an individual in phase 2 who may be providing paid work for retired people? Also, we may have corporates registering as a ‘white-labelled’ service… should we include all these now or amend the registration terms of use at a later stage?

    1.4.2 Registering as a Member. To be eligible to register as a Member, you must be at least 50 years old.  To register as a Member, you will need to do so here

    1.4.3 Creating an Account. To create an Account, you will be required to register as a Member and to accept these Terms.

    1.4.4 Usernames.

You agree that you will: (a) provide truthful, accurate, current and complete information about you whenever prompted or permitted by any Site registration process (“Personal Data“); and (b) maintain and promptly update your Personal Data and keep your Personal Data accurate, current and complete.  We reserve the right to carry out spot checks on Users’ profiles.

    You must not use your password as your username.

    You cannot use a username that is already allocated to another Member, and it is a condition of your right to use the Site that you do not choose a username that is obscene or otherwise offensive.  We are entitled (but not obliged) to filter out certain words that we consider unacceptable, but please note that any such process can never be a comprehensive filter.  We therefore reserve the right to terminate your Membership and Account if, in our discretion, we consider that your username (or its use) is offensive.  If for any reason your Membership or Account is terminated, we may issue the same username to a subsequent registered Member.

    1.4.5 Security. You agree to maintain the security of your username, password and other Personal Data, and not to allow anyone else to use your username or password.  YOU ARE FULLY RESPONSIBLE AND LIABLE FOR ALL USE OF, AND ALL ACTIVITY CARRIED OUT UNDER, YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD ON ANY SERVICE (WHETHER BY YOURSELF OR BY A THIRD PARTY WHO HAS BECOME AWARE OF YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD THROUGH YOUR DELIBERATE ACT OR NEGLIGENCE). Any misuse of your registration details should be reported to MyTime as soon as you become aware of such misuse.

    1.4.6 Registration limitations. Registration does not mean that you can use your Membership or Account for all Services that we may offer via the Site, some of which may be subject to additional terms, conditions and/or restrictions, such as eligibility criteria that you may not meet.

    1.4.7 Profiles and communications made on the Site. If you are a Member, you can control how your personal information is shared on the Site via your privacy settings. You accept that your personal profile (to the extent made visible by you) and communications with other Users via any user group, forum or other means of communication on the Site are public communications, and that you have no expectation of privacy concerning any such profile and communications or your use of any Service. You acknowledge that information that you choose to communicate publicly via the Site may be seen and used by others and might result in unsolicited communications. MYTIME IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INFORMATION THAT YOU CHOOSE TO COMMUNICATE TO OTHER USERS VIA THE SITE OR ANY SERVICE, NOR ARE WE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF OTHER USERS (UNLESS WE BECOME RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH ACTIONS UNDER APPLICABLE LAW).

    1.4.8 Termination of your Membership or Account. You or we may terminate your Membership or Account at any time and for any reason, and we may at our discretion terminate your Membership or Account without any further formality if we have reason to believe that you have failed to comply with any of these Terms.  To terminate your Membership or Account, please contact us (details below). We shall terminate it as soon as reasonably practical after receiving your termination request.  If we terminate your Membership or Account for any breach of these Terms on your part, you will not be permitted to re-register as a Member without our express permission.

    use the Site in any unlawful manner, nor for any unlawful purpose, nor in any other manner that could damage, disable, overburden or impair the Site or any Content (including by posting any virus or other malicious material);

    1.7 Your personal information

    We shall process information about you in accordance with our Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy.  By using the Site, you consent to such processing and you warrant the accuracy of all data provided by you. For further details, please refer to our Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy.


    2.1 Limitation of liability

    Any information contained in the Site is intended for general information purposes only.  We make reasonable efforts to provide information that is accurate at the time of inclusion, but there may be errors or omissions.

    Unless and to the extent only that the following exclusions are incapable of exclusion by applicable law, the Site and all its features are used by you at your risk and are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without any guarantees, warranties, representations, terms or conditions of any kind (whether express or implied by legislation or operation of law).

    To the fullest extent permitted by law:

    we disclaim all guarantees, warranties, representations, terms and conditions of any kind (express or implied) in relation to the Site (or any content or services made available on or via the Site) and, for example, we do not give any assurance that the Site will be available at all or at any times or that the Site or Content will be error-free, uninterrupted or secure;

    neither MyTime nor any of its affiliates, licensors, suppliers, successors and assignees or its or their respective officers, employees, agents or contractors (together, the “MyTime Parties” and each, a “MyTime Party“) shall be liable to you for any indirect, special or consequential loss that is suffered or incurred by you in connection with your use of, or inability to use, the Site, and that constitutes wasted management or office time and/or loss of income, business, profits, contracts, anticipated savings, data and/or goodwill; and

    in particular, no MyTime Party shall be liable for any damage to your equipment or any computer software or system or loss of data or of other content that may result from the download, installation and/or use of any material or software accessed via or for use of the Site, nor does any MyTime Party endorse, warrant or guarantee any third-party product, content or service offered via the Site, nor will any MyTime Party be a party to (or in any way be responsible for monitoring) any transaction between you and third-party providers of products, content or services.

    Despite the above:

    Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain guarantees, warranties, representations, terms or conditions.  Where that is the case (and to such extent), the exclusions and limitations of liability in these Terms may not apply to you.

    2.2 Other services

    2.2.1 Third-party services. No MyTime Party is responsible or liable for any products, content, services or activities provided by or for third parties via or in connection with the Site (or any technical or other issues that may arise from such provision).  We have no control over third-party products, content, services or activities and make no assurances of any kind about them.

    2.2.2 Links. No MyTime Party is responsible for any links to third-party sites (or content of or made available via any such third-party site) that may be provided on the Site by us or by any user of the Site. Such links do not constitute endorsements by any MyTime Party. We have no control over the content of linked sites and make no assurances of any kind about third-party sites.

    You may link to the home page of the Site only, as long as you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it, but you must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on our part where none exists.

    You must not establish a link from any site that is not owned by you. [Ed, does this mean a user can’t add a link to an interesting site or article they’ve found that’s relevant to retirement? This might restrict the social media aspect of the site] The Site must not be framed on any other site, nor may you create a link to any part of the Site other than the home page. We reserve the right to withdraw linking permission without notice. The site from which you are linking must comply in all respects with the content standards set out in these Terms.

    2.4 Suspension and termination

    We may, at our discretion, suspend or terminate the provision of any part of the Site or restrict your access to it without any prior notice to you where, for example: (a) we consider that you are acting in breach of any of these Terms; (b) there is a regulatory or statutory change limiting our ability to provide such part of the Site; and/or (c) any event beyond our reasonable control prevents us from continuing to provide such part of the Site (such as technical difficulties or communications failures).

    Prevalence.  Except as otherwise specified in these Terms, in the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and any other terms and conditions referred to in these Terms, the provisions of these Terms shall prevail.  For this purpose, however, an omission shall not be understood as giving rise to an inconsistency.

    Non-waiver. Failure to insist on strict performance of, or to exercise any right or remedy under, these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of that right or remedy and shall not relieve the defaulting party from compliance with such party’s obligations.

    Severability. If any provision(s) of these Terms is found to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable by any court or other authority of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions will continue to be valid, lawful and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.

    Governing law and jurisdiction. Except to the extent otherwise required by applicable law (for example, to give effect to your rights as a consumer under the law of the country in which you are resident), these Terms and any related dispute or claim (contractual or non-contractual) shall be governed by, and interpreted in accordance with, English law and subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.  We reserve the right to bring any action in any other court of competent jurisdiction.
