Active Together

Dragons Community are striving to reduce loneliness and social isolation amongst older people across the region, thanks to an exciting new partnership with Re-engage.


Re-engage are charity that work with older people aged 75 and over to provide social connections for older people at a time in their lives when their social circles are diminishing. We offer free services to help people to feel more connected to their communities, with the aim of reducing loneliness and social isolation.


• Our activity groups give those 75 and over the chance to participate in gentle exercise as they make connections with others. Our activity groups in Wales and West Yorkshire take place both face to face and online.

• Our tea parties are monthly social groups open to people aged 75 and over. They are a chance for a change of scenery and regular afternoons of conversation and laughter with friends of all ages.

• Community Christmas provides a free online directory of local festive events and activities taking place across the UK, which are open to local older people who would otherwise be spending Christmas alone.

• Call companions is our telephone befriending service ensuring older people remain connected to the outside world. Call companions is available to anyone aged 75 and over who would benefit from a regular chat over the phone with a friendly volunteer.


• We have a highly successful group that meet every fortnight at the home of Dragons RFC at Rodney Parade

• Tuesday 11am to 12.30pm

• More members welcome to join this inspiring setting and become part of the Dragons Family
