About Us


To empower older people to live happy, healthy, independent, and connected lives.


All older people are respected, valued, included and listened to in society, and actively involved in shaping the world.

For Engage with Age’s Strategic Plan 2023-26 its core aims are:

1. To empower older people to reduce the impact of loneliness and isolation on peer individuals within their communities and neighbourhoods.

2. To empower older people to improve their own health and wellbeing.

3. To strengthen communities and neighbourhoods by supporting and empowering older people’s groups and forums.

4. To empower older people so they can shape matters that affect their lives.

Engage with Age can accept referrals of individual older people aged 50+ who are at risk of loneliness and social isolation, inviting them to participate in group activities. Engage with Age offers one-to-one telephone befriending support for individual older people but does not currently provide in person visits to individual older people. To make a referral please complete the on-line Referral Form and submit or alternatively please print off a copy of the PDF Referral Form and send it to us. See also the Referral Criteria for details of who can be referred.
