Re-engage is the only national charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation among older people.
Our volunteers work together to create better communities and help to enrich the lives of our members by giving them something to look forward to. Older people who may have felt very alone, now feel valued as individuals, continue to form friendships, and have groups that give support. We make sure that people know they are important well into old age. Respectful, determined, warm, pioneering, and local: we are Re-engage and we are bringing generations together.
We offer a free telephone befriending service (Call Companions) free monthly social groups (tea parties) open to people aged 75 and over.
Our Tea Parties are a chance for a change of scenery and regular afternoons of conversation and laughter with friends of all ages. You will even be taken there and home again so don’t need to worry about organising travel.
We also offer rainbow call companions, a telephone befriending service specifically for older LGBT+ people who would benefit from speaking with another member of the LGBT+ community. Click here to find out more about this service.
