Volunteer your club or organisation
Australia Post is helping seniors connect with new friends through letter writing.
If you’re connected to a club or organisation (perhaps a staff member, volunteer or resident) for over 55s, they will put you in touch with someone from another organisation for seniors.
You’ll work with them to organise groups of pen pals to start exchanging hand-written letters with each other.
This initiative encourages people to make new friends, through the sharing of stories and experiences, at a time when human connection has never been more important.
