The Australian Loneliness Dialogue 2020 | Friends For Good

In July 2020, the second The Australian Loneliness Dialogue conference was hosted online via video link.

The conference moved to an online format due to the devastating effect of the Victorian bushfires and COVID-19 pandemic.

It was an excellent opportunity to discuss issues, latest research and interventions related to loneliness particularly with a focus on rural and regional Australia. It was attended by metro, regional, rural and international delegates who got a chance to ask anything of our speakers.

A big thanks to our sponsors for your support to host this event, all of our speakers and video link facilitators for your time, effort and involvement. Thanks to our Friends for Good volunteers who have worked hard to ensure the conference was a success despite the challenging circumstances.
