Re-Engage

Contact the Elderly brings happiness and companionship back into the lives of older people suffering from loneliness and social isolation. They organise monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for people aged 75 and over who live alone, with little or no contact with friends or family and who find it difficult to get out and about by themselves. The simple concept of a cup of tea and some conversation helps the older guests to feel part of their community again, make new friends and gives them something to look forward to. Older guests are collected from their home each month by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home, where they meet with a small group for tea, conversation and companionship.
