About Re-engage

Re-engage is a charity that is positive about older age and committed to fighting loneliness so that people can have social lives and friendship groups however old they are. We inspire and enable meaningful connections and shared experiences within communities across the UK for people aged 75 and over who are facing loneliness and social isolation. 

Our volunteers work together to create better communities and help to enrich the lives of our members. Older people who may have felt very alone now feel valued as individuals, continue to form friendships, and have groups that give support. We make sure that people know they are important well into their old age.

Respectful, determined, warm, pioneering, and local: we are Re-engage and we are bringing generations together.

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