Re-engage provides vital, life-enhancing social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing.
Watch our film
Our short film features Barbara, who is in her mid-nineties. When her husband died six years ago, she feared she’d be isolated at home, but through Re-engage she’s found companionship, friends and hope. Our vision is a world where no one is ever too old to make friends and enjoy social interaction. Watch our film and find out how you can help us give more people like Barbara something to look forward to.
