Closing Date & Time

Seniors Connected is a sub-activity of the Strong and Resilient Communities (SARC) Activity, which sits under Outcome 2.1, Families and Communities. The objective of Outcome 2.1 is to strengthen relationships, support families, improve wellbeing of children and young people, reduce the cost of family breakdown, and strengthen family and community functioning. The intent of Seniors Connected is to address the silent battle of loneliness that many older Australians live with every day. The aim is to support their mental health by providing a national phone line for older Australians to alleviate loneliness and social isolation to improve their quality of life and to continue to live independently.

Seniors Connected will deliver activities to community organisations to address loneliness and social isolation issues amongst older Australians.
