    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    A new report published by Re-engage highlights the impact of scams and fraud on people aged 75+ in the UK who are experiencing loneliness. 

    The report includes research conducted by Professor Mark Button, Director of the Centre for Cybercrime and Economic Crime and Criminal Justice at the University of Portsmouth. The research found: 

    • Scams and fraud significantly impact people aged 75 and over who are experiencing loneliness
    • How scams and fraud can reduce wellbeing, and increase isolation and digital exclusion
    • What steps can be taken to reduce the impact of scams and fraud on isolated people aged 75 and over

    Join the Re-engage online event to hear more about the research and hear from a panel of experts that includes Friends Against Scams, Aviva, and Professor Mark Button

    Laura Joplin, Head of Impact at Re-engage, will chair the session and talk about how we are educating and supporting people aged 75 and over to be more aware of the risks.
