Give the gift of friendship
For one week only, your donations will be doubled. Just £15 will help us give people like Barbara something to look forward to.
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 Christmas film
Half a million older people go at least five or six days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone at all and Christmas is a particularly difficult time. Our Christmas 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. Watch our film and find out how you can help us give more people like Barbara something to look forward to, this Christmas and beyond.
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.
