Re-engage tackles loneliness amongst the oldest old in the UK - those over 75 upwards. We exist because there are 1.2 million older people in the UK who are chronically lonely. Lonely means having no one to talk to for days at a time; putting the TV on to fill the silence; forgetting what it is like to feel valued and loved.
At Re-engage we give thousands of isolated older people the opportunity to make new friends in their local community. Our 12,000 volunteers provide regular face-to-face contact through small social gatherings, creating life-changing friendships that last for many years. These friendships are lifelines for isolated older people bringing happiness and companionship back into their lives.
