Organisation aims and objectives

Re-engage is committed to older people being heard, valued and engaged. Our vision is a world where no one is ever too old to make friends and enjoy social interaction and our mission is to work within communities to end social isolation and loneliness in older people. WHAT WE DO? We exist to provide social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing. Our tea parties are monthly social groups open to people aged 75 and over. They are a chance for a change of scenery and regular afternoons of conversation and laughter with friends of all ages. Call companions is our telephone befriending service ensuring older people remain connected to the outside world. Call companions is available to anyone aged 75 and over who would benefit from a regular chat over the phone with a friendly volunteer. Our activity groups give those 75 and over the chance to participate in gentle exercise as they make connections with others. Community Christmas provides a free online directory of local festive events and activities taking place across the UK, which are open to local older people who would otherwise be spending Christmas alone. All our services are free to older people.
