As we get older, our social circles diminish, and we find ourselves with fewer and fewer people to turn to. Imagine realising one day that all your friends and family have gone from your life. Loneliness can be cruel, and it affects millions of people aged 75 and over who live in social isolation.
By playing the Re-engage lottery, you can help make life less lonely for thousands of older people every year. Every entry helps older people to meet new people in-person through our social groups, or over the phone through our telephone befriending service, providing them with regular meaningful companionship and letting them know they're not
This regular contact has been shown to improve physical and mental wellbeing, and older people tell us that our volunteer-led activities make them happier and more able to trust others.
"Having someone to talk to - just about small unimportant things - makes all the difference. Unless you've felt lonely you can't know what it's like. The days are long and it's so hard having no-one to talk to."
Thank you for helping to relieve the misery of loneliness for older people, by playing the Re-engage lottery.
