Re-engage (Moray)

Charity registered in Scotland SC039377

Reengage (formerly Contact the Elderly) is a national charity and organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for people over 75 who live alone with little or no support from family and friends. One Sunday afternoon a month volunteers use their car to take older members to and from a volunteer host’s home for tea, cake and companionship. Hosts take it in turn to welcome the small group of older people and volunteer drivers into their home for a few hours.

Current opportunity

Do you have a couple of hours a month to help drive older people to tea parties? We are looking for help across Moray with our Tea Parties. We have tea parties that are run for our older members of the community to help combat isolation and loneliness, Our groups are there to share a friendly conversation over a cup of tea or with a slice of cake. We are just looking for a friendly and patient volunteer to help one or two guests to the hosted tea party and home again. You are of course invited to stay and take part in the tea party as well. No experience necessary just that you are able to drive and can co-ordinate with our group organisers to help get our guests to and from the tea party. This is well suited to busy schedules since this is once a month and can be fit around your own availability. All training is provided and you are supported at every step of your application and in your role by our team.
