While the festive season can be wonderful in many ways, it can also be a lonely time for some.  Making a new connection can make all the difference.  Reengage provides the call companion service, aimed at older people who live alone, or in sheltered accommodation. If you, or someone you know, could benefit from a friendly voice and good chat, this could be just the thing.

Once registered with the scheme, you can receive a regular call every week or two with the same person.  Reengage aims to match you with a call companion with similar interests where possible.  See the link below for further information about the service and elegibilty.

How can I help someone to do this?

You could help to talk through the idea of the service with a friend or relative who would benefit from the additional contact.  If they are interested, you could help them to apply using the link below.
