Charity of the Year 19/20
This year we are continuing to support Re-engage as our Charity of the Year. Re-engage are 100% committed to tackling loneliness in the 1.4 million older people in the UK who are suffering. This amazing charity support older people to re-engage with their communities, with face-to-face contact, and provide a helping hand when required.
Their vision is a world where no one is ever too old to make friends and enjoy social interaction, and we couldn’t agree more!
How do they do this?
Re-engage exist to bring older people together into social groups. This is important because it’s typically at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing.
Last year, nearly 7,000 older guests were part of over 900 groups across the UK, supported by 12,000 volunteers from the charity.
Why choose this charity?
