There is no need to feel lonely

As more of us are now facing lengthy periods of self-isolation as Australia prepares for COVID-19 Coronavirus, people living alone in our communities are going to being feeling the anxiety of loneliness and disconnection.

Although our Community Visitors have been stood down temporarily due to the closure of local nursing homes, they are still dedicated to the task of reducing social isolation and are willing to give their time to make daily phone calls to those in the community who feel they would benefit from a friendly chat, and a connection to their community and to the larger outside world.

If you would like to receive a daily phone from a friendly voice, please contact the New School of Arts Neighbourhood House on 6640 3800 or email [email protected] to register your interest and we’ll connect you to one of our lovely volunteers.
