As a tea party host you will run a local ReEngage Tea Party one or two times a year.
As a tea party driver you will liaise with the group coordinator and take older guests to and from the tea parties each month.
Tea Parties are usually held once a month on a Sunday.
Volunteers need to be 18 or older.
Tea Party Hosts will run a ReEngage Tea Party and provide tea and cakes at their homes to a group of 5 or 6 older people once or twice a year on a Sunday afternoon for a couple of hours.
Tea Party Drivers are required to take 2 or 3 guests to and from the venue for the tea party, which is usually at a volunteer host’s home.
It is hoped that the driver will remain with the group to participate in the afternoon tea and chat and to assist the host if necessary.
We need regular drivers who would be available to drive each (or most) months and also occasional drivers who would be able to drive a few times a year.

Re-engage has Public Liability insurance, however, this will not cover your home for any damage that may occur. Although it is rare for damage to happen at a tea party, we recommend you inform your insurance company that you are hosting these events and add accidental damage cover to your contents insurance before hosting your first tea party. All external venues need to have public liability in place and once you have checked they have this, you will need to submit a declaration as confirmation. Before you start as a volunteer driver, please check that you are covered by your regular motor insurance policy to do this role. During the annual check you will be asked to sign a driver declaration to confirm that you have told your insurance company of your volunteer driving.
