Re-engage Volunteers

  • VO65183


Would you be able to spare a couple of hours once or twice a year to enjoy a cup of tea with an older person? We’re looking for local people to host tea parties to help reduce loneliness and build social connections.

Isolation and Loneliness are on the rise especially with Older People in the Aberdeen Community. We are looking for friendly and caring people to help with our tea parties. Could you help serve refreshments and friendly conversation from the comfort of your own home? You will only be hosting once or twice a year, so this is perfect for fitting around your own availability and lifestyle.

All our guests are driven to your home by volunteer drivers, and you will be led by our tea party volunteer coordinator. Normally your tea party will last for about 2 hours on a Sunday afternoon. It is the same local group you host so you can make some real connections to your community and the Older Guests. All training is remote, and you are supported by our team and Tea Party Co-ordinator in your role.

A fantastic, enjoyable volunteer opportunity where you will make a real difference. All help is greatly appreciated.

For more information please contact Esther Lynn, Engagement Officer at email: or telephone: 020 8017 8234.

Organisation aims and objectives

Re-engage exist to bring older people together into social groups at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing. Last year, nearly 7,000 older guests were part of over 900 groups across the UK, supported by 12,000 volunteers.


Experience required: No experience or particular skills required. We just need you to be an empathetic person who is ready to work alongside Older People over the age of 75. We welcome families helping as well as this can be a great opportunity for connecting with your community.
Travel details: This is held in your own home so no travel is needed. You will be amongst a team of volunteers who take turns to host in the homes so you will only be scheduled in for once or twice a year.
Minimum age: 18


Training details: Excellent support and relevant training is provided to all volunteers. Full remote training provided including PVG check and safeguarding. You can complete at your own pace. In your role you are also supported by our Support team and your Tea Party Co-ordinator for any questions or queries you have.
