THE Red Cross is urg­ing lo­cals to make sure their neigh­bours do not have a lonely win­ter this year. Red Cross chief ex­ec­u­tive Robert Tick­ner said 1.5 mil­lion Aus­tralians felt iso­lated or dis­con­nected. “Hav­ing friends around us sup­ports good men­tal health,” he said. The Red Cross helps lonely peo­ple join so­cial groups and phones thou­sands of el­derly peo­ple a day. Visit www.red­cross.org.au for more in­for­ma­tion.
