Our tea party hosts are a vital part of the Re-engage team.
Tea parties provide a lifeline of friendship for our older people, and the regular, warm, friendly chats and companionship provide a vital link with the outside world from which they have become isolated. Re-engage needs enthusiastic volunteers to work as tea party hosts.
This is a flexible, voluntary role that can easily be fitted in around your own lifestyle and availability. As a volunteer host you will run a local Re-engage tea party one to two times a year. You will host a group made up of volunteer drivers, the group coordinator and older guests in either your home or a community venue. The tea parties will last around two hours and will usually take place on a Sunday afternoon. You must be comfortable socialising with people and providing guests and other volunteers with refreshments.
You will need one reference and to complete an ID check for this role.

• Providing and serving refreshments for your group – usually food and drinks for afternoon tea.
• Liaising with your group coordinator to ensure dietary requirements and the older guests' needs are met prior to the tea party.
• Informing the group coordinator of any safeguarding concerns or issues you might have.
• Following all guidance in your host training modules to ensure that the tea parties are enjoyable, appropriate, and in line with our charitable aims.
The number of older guests attending your tea party will be confirmed by the group coordinator prior to the group meeting so you have plenty of time to plan. It is important for the older guests to have access to a downstairs toilet. They will also require seating; a combination of lounge chairs and hard back chairs is fine. Don’t worry if you don’t have chairs for all the drivers as they will be circulating and helping you if required, so you can enjoy the afternoon too. A lot of stairs can present problems, although just a few steps are usually manageable.
Experience required: No experience necessary however we are looking for hosts with the following skills and attributes:
• Good conversational skills
• An enthusiasm for making genuine connections with older people in your community
• A friendly, patient, and empathetic approach
• Passion for entertaining, providing food and refreshments
