Aims and objectives
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. They inspire and enable meaningful connections and shared experiences within communities across the UK for people over 75 facing loneliness and social isolation.
Its volunteers work together to create better communities and help to enrich the lives of members by giving them something to look forward to.
Older people who may have felt very alone now feel valued as individuals, continue to form friendships and have groups that give support. They make sure that people know they are important well into old age. Respectful, determined, warm, pioneering, and local.
There is currently a telephone befriending service (call companions) and they also offer a telephone befriending service specifically for older people from the LGBT+ community (rainbow call companions) offering weekly calls from volunteers who also identify with that community. They have in-person social groups (monthly tea party gatherings) where older people can interact and socialise with volunteers and other older people.
