Do you have older clients who are suffering from loneliness and isolation?
We exist to provide social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing and the threat of associated risks that loneliness can bring is greatest.
All our services are free to older people and, critically, are for those aged 75 and over who are lonely, isolated or in need of companionship.
If you know someone who might benefit from being part of Re-engage, then please get in touch with our engagement team using our contact form, making it clear where you are from and what geographic area you cover. We have engagement officers right across the UK who are there to support you. Or, you can refer online, or ring our team on 020 7240 0630.
Do bear in mind that we are a social activity charity and are unable to provide a specialist support service. See our FAQs for suitability and requirements.
We believe, like you, that older people should have the opportunity to be involved in their communities and are passionate about giving them the chance to make new friends and overcome the emptiness of loneliness and isolation at a time in their lives when they find it hard to overcome on their own. We know how damaging loneliness can be to people’s mental and physical health and we also know how much older people benefit from our services
Social prescribing link worker,
“The people I referred in who were able to attend groups found them really friendly and looked forward to attending. They were people who didn’t get out of the house other than for GP or hospital appointments and the fact that transport was provided and that they could go to someone else’s house was a really positive experience.”
