Re-engage tackles loneliness for some of the oldest and most vulnerable people in the UK. Their beneficiaries are on average age 85, almost all live alone and often have few friends or family left. Many have experienced near-constant loneliness. With the help of thousands of dedicated volunteers, they provide isolated older people with regular companionship in their local communities or over the phone. Their services are designed to help long-term friendships flourish between people of all ages. Older people tell the charity that being part of Re-engage gives them something to look forward to and makes them happier.
