Re-engage are a nationwide charity on a mission to combat loneliness amongst older people through free volunteer-led social activity groups and call companions, a free telephone befriending service.
Residents aged over 75 years of age will be matched with trained and vetted volunteers, and those residents looking for volunteering opportunities will be trained and supported to become call companions.
These volunteers – known as call companions – will provide life changing social connections and companionship through regular telephone conversations. Re-engage also offer the rainbow companions service for LGBT+ users over 75 who’d like to speak to someone who is also LGBT+.
Residents over the age of 75 can refer themselves to the programme or ask their housing officer for a referral if they feel they need it.
Residents over the age of 18 can also get involved by registering to become a volunteer where you will receive in depth training and on-going support.
From time to time, NHG and some of our partners have some really amazing volunteering opportunities. Below is a list of current opportunities available either directly with NHG or with some of our partners.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities, then please submit a referral form clearly stating which opportunities you are interested in and a member of our team will contact you for further information.
