Re-engage are looking for volunteers to organise their activity groups


The goal of re-engage is to reduce loneliness amongst older people by bringing generations together in friendship and shared experiences. They provide vital, life-enhancing social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing.

As a volunteer group coordinator, you will set up or coordinate an activity group in your local area. You will coordinate activity-based groups for people aged 75 and over in community centres, pubs or church spaces. Groups will host between four and 15 activity guests, along with volunteer drivers who pick up and drop off activity guests. Activities can vary and eqquipment for Boccia, Cornhole or Carpet Curling can beprovided, or you come up with your own activity to get people moving. Groups meet for around two hours on a monthly or fortnightly basis and activities must be inclusive for all activity guests. You will be required to complete a DBS check for this role, for which Re-engage will cover the cost.

This is a fulfilling and enjoyable role which will enable you to develop your leadership skills, gain valuable experience with a national charity and, most importantly, connect with lonely older people and make a real and lasting difference to their lives.
