Information Now


Re-engage organise monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for people over 75 who live alone. Volunteers use their cars to take guests to and from a volunteer host’s home where drivers and guests meet for tea and cake. Groups are kept small so everyone can get to know one another and volunteers and guests make lasting friendships. This organisation used to be called Contact the Elderly.

There are 6 groups that meet in Newcastle and there are other meetings across the North East:

  • Gateshead
  • Burradon & Dudley
  • Cramlington & Blyth
  • Ponteland
  • Tynedale
  • Tynedale West
  • Tynemouth
  • Whitley Bay
