Staying connected in your community

Loneliness and social isolation can affect everyone, but older people are particularly vulnerable after the loss of friends and family, reduced mobility or reduced income.

We fund a range of programs, available across Queensland, to help you reduce your risk of isolation, improve your health, and strengthen your links with your community.
