"The calls are like a little ray of sunshine in an otherwise dark time."

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

Most famous for our tea parties - currently on hold due to the pandemic - we also offer telephone call companions and online group activities.

As the lockdown eases, we are excited about resuming our much-loved tea parties as soon as it’s safe and our groups are ready.

We are currently in contact with our tea party volunteers about this.

If you are a Re-engage tea party volunteer, please make sure you let us know if you would still like to be involved by completing our quick and easy form.

In the meantime, older people looking to stay connected should take a look at our popular call companion service and, for those in Wales, our activity groups.

All our services are free.

Help us reach more older people feeling lonely, in the lockdown and beyond

We need funds to cover the cost of putting in place safe programmes as we work with the most vulnerable older people:

  • We need to run checks on new volunteers
  • Pay for training
  • Pay for calls using safe systems to protect vulnerable people

Please consider supporting this work and the work we will continue to do with the older people we meet in the coming months so that we can support them for years to come.

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.

Here’s how your donation could help us

£5 could allow us to give our invaluable volunteers essential training and support

£15 could help to bring friendship and laughter to an older person in need of company

£50 could enable us to introduce new activities that avoid social contact but give companionship to older people who are now more isolated than ever

Become a supporter by giving monthly or make a single donation online.
