Re-engage is committed to fighting loneliness so that people can have social lives no matter how old they are. There are 1.4 million older people in the UK who suffer from loneliness, and an estimated 500,000 are going up to 6 days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone at all. Re-engage runs over 900 free, regular friendship groups in local communities across the UK. The groups bring together isolated older people with local volunteers, providing valuable opportunities to make friends of all ages. It is a simple but very effective way of tackling loneliness. Their groups have a hugely beneficial impact on the well-being and happiness of older people and volunteers a-like.

Re-engage is committed to working with the ‘oldest old’ in our society, from 75 to over 100, as they believe that no-one is ever too old to make friends.
