Help us connect more buddies. Donate today.
One in four Australians reported feeling lonely each week. But together we can change this.
Brightwater Buddies supports residents in aged care and disability homes to stay socially active, in a time when connection with family, friends and the community isn’t always possible.
We launched this initiative in March 2020, and have since connected over 800 people from across WA with our residents, through letter writing and phone calls. In August 2020, we expanded the program even further, to bring vital connections to not only our Brightwater clients, but socially isolated people in the WA community.
We want to take the next step and expand our Brightwater Buddies program to face-to-face social gatherings when COVID-19 restrictions ease – ensuring already established connections continue to grow.
