Australia has very little longitudinal data about the prevalance or causes of loneliness for people in the community.
TimeWeTalked is a campaign to gather vital information about loneliness by asking people to answer an anonymous survey.
Over time, we will analyse the data collected and use it to help define services we can provide as an organisation.View the survey

With little known about loneliness and a stigma to overcome, Friends for Good aims to raise awareness of the causes and effects of loneliness in the community.
We have started the conversation on social media to identify loneliness as the enormous problem that it is.
