How your donation helps
Every month, with the help of our amazing pool of volunteers, we take thousands of older people to our free Sunday afternoon gatherings, offering them a vital lifeline of friendship and helping them reconnect with their communities.
Unfortunately there are many more lonely and isolated elderly people who want our support and we need your help to reach them.
Re-engage has changed my life. I feel like I have a whole new set of friends to talk to. It's wonderful.
How we spend our money
We are supported by a network of incredible volunteers, whose efforts mean that we are able to keep our costs very low; however we still incur a number of costs in providing support to our volunteers and guests.
The pie chart below shows how our funds are spent, with 90p in every £1 going towards directly supporting our work.
We have Support Officers across the UK working to support our groups. Development Officers also play an essential role in developing new groups, as they are responsible for managing the entire process of recruiting enough volunteers and guests to make the group a success.
Once the group has launched either they become the primary source of advice, support and motivation during, and continue to provide "light touch" support for years to come, helping groups when they encounter difficulties or need any additional support.
In our small National Office, our staff work on promoting our work to potential volunteers and guests, reaching out to elderly people through our relationships with health professionals, the Police, Fire and Ambulance services, housing associations and others, and, of course, raising funds to support our groups.
