We started the Friendship Alliance in 2018 aiming to share resources, advocate and raise awareness about the health impacts on our community.

Since that time we have welcomed new members, developed our guidelines, created a strategy and most recently have written to the Federal Government to request a national strategy be developed to address loneliness.

We meet quarterly by video conference and welcome new groups or individuals to join us. A small leadership group guides our work and Friends for Good is the chair of the Alliance meetings and provides administrative support.

If you would like to join us, please email us. To discuss our work please call Patricia Lauria, CEO, Friends for Good on 0414 341 985.
