Re-engage formerly Contact the Elderly

Charity Number: 1146149 Company Number: 7869142

Contact the Elderly is a national charity (founded in 1965) which helps relieve loneliness by arranging free monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties. One Sunday a month each older guest is collected by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home where they join a small group for tea, friendship and conversation.
The group of 6 to 8 older guests and their volunteer drivers are welcomed by volunteer hosts who give afternoon tea in their home once or twice a year.
We focus on those over 75 who are isolated, who cannot get out without a helping hand, and have no close family nearby. We also welcome members who would benefit from the warmth of companionship and conversation but may not feel at ease in a club, or lack confidence to use community transport. We give priority to people living on their own and understand that on Sunday older people may feel especially lonely despite other contacts during the week. We also recognise that people in sheltered accommodation may technically not be living alone, but may still feel very isolated.
