"Re-engage has given me something to look forward to, something to live for."

Re-engage provides vital, life-enhancing social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing.

More than 2.3 million people over 75 live alone and over the past year they have become increasingly vulnerable to loneliness and isolation.

Social isolation and loneliness are more than an emotional experience, they have huge mental and physical health implications. Older people living alone are significantly more likely to experience health problems, visit their GP or attend A&E.

As the ageing population continues to grow, so does the epidemic of loneliness among older people. We’re the only charity solely committed to tackling this problem in those 75 and older by helping older people to re-engage with their communities through regular social contact, giving them a lifeline of friendship and, vitally, something to look forward to.

Help us reach more older people feeling lonely and isolated

Our vision is a world where no one is ever too old to make friends and enjoy social interaction.

We can’t increase our impact without your support, so whether you can donate, raise funds or let more people know about us, we hope you’ll accompany us on our journey.
