In 2020, the theme for Neighbourhood Centre Week is ‘Loneliness: the solution is community’.
Recent research has found 1 in 4 Australians are lonely, and that the ‘loneliness epidemic’ has significant social, health and economic impacts.
Neighbourhood centres by their very nature help combat loneliness by providing a space for people to meet and form meaningful connections through participation in community programs and projects.
Whilst things are different at the moment with Covid-19 we have enjoyed staying connected with our community through our Social Media channels, through phone calls and emails
In honour of Neighbourhood Centre Week we would love for you to share how Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre has helped you or someone you know in the community to connect or helped in any way that has added to their happiness OR share what have you done or had done for you to reduce loneliness in the community.
Leave a comment, share a photo or tag Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre on Facebook!
Remember we are still here for our community.
