Re-engage is a charity working to end social isolation and loneliness in older people in the UK.
Re-engage provides social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing. In 2019, 8,500 older guests were part of over 900 regular social gatherings across the UK, supported by 14,000 volunteers.
