COVID 19 Update: Due to the current COVID 19 situation it is likely that many of the face to face organisations and services listed across our website are suspended. Please call to check first.
Do you want to find groups and support in the community that might help you improve your health and wellbeing? You can find lots of local support from charities to social groups in the Health Connections Mendip Directory.
Formerly known as Contact the Elderly, Re-engage Charity’s monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties are a lifeline of friendship for lonely people over 75. Each older person is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home for the afternoon. In Mendip the service currently runs in Frome, Glastonbury,Shepton Mallet, Wells and Rode.
If you know or work with the older person you are referring, and have their permission, you can make a full referral via our online form, and we will then be in touch with the older person directly. See link below if you would like to refer someone or to go to a tea party. Please contact to find out more or if you are interested in volunteering.
