A GROWING number of our neighbours will face a lonely winter this year, with as many as 7% or 1.5 million Australians predicted to be considered isolated or very isolated this year.
Having friends around us makes us more resilient to life’s knocks and challenges.
Red Cross helps people of all ages who are doing it tough. We help isolated people reconnect with their communities by assisting them to join social groups and build new friendships. Red Cross also provides phone calls to thousands of elderly Australians.
I’m asking everyone to dig deep before June 30 to make sure Red Cross will always be there.
