Ending loneliness together in Australia
In the foreword to the White Paper Ending loneliness together in Australia Dr Michelle Lim shares
Loneliness is a critical issue of our time. Research on loneliness and its detrimental implications for our health and the wellbeing of communities, workplaces and schools is advancing rapidly. We now know that a subjective sense of social isolation – that is, simply feeling lonely – is equally important as being physically isolated.
Ending Loneliness Together is committed to evidence-based action to tackle loneliness. As allies in a shared vision, I invite you to join us and support us as we set out in pursuit of a national response to ending loneliness in Australia.
