Tea Party Host

Could you help serve refreshments and friendly conversation from the comfort of your own home? You will only be hosting once or twice a year, so this is perfect for fitting around your own availability and lifestyle.
All our guests are driven to your home by volunteer drivers, and you will be led by our tea party volunteer coordinator. Normally your tea party will last for about 2 hours on a Sunday afternoon. It is the same local group you host so you can make some real connections.

About Re-engage

Re-engage exists to support older people who live alone and find it hard to get out in normal times. The Covid-19 crisis is particularly devastating for these people and many are feeling incredibly vulnerable, especially those with few family members or friends to talk to. In response to the crisis we’ve suspended our regular social gatherings and, with the help of our dedicated volunteers, have set up a UK-wide call companions service. Older people who are feeling alone can receive a regular friendly phone call throughout the crisis and beyond, for as long as they want it. No one should have to face this crisis alone. We won’t leave anyone behind.

Experience Required

No experience or particular skills required. We just need you to be an empathetic person who is ready to work alongside Older People over the age of 75.

Training Details

Full remote training provided including PVG check and safeguarding, complete at your own pace. In your role you are also supported by our Support team and your Tea Party Co-ordinator for any questions or queries you have.
