Happy New Year from the Neighbour Day team! Our 2017 theme is:The importance of social connection for the elderly. The theme encourages people to reach out to elderly people in their neighbourhoods, particularly those who may be lonely or socially isolated.
For many of us, the beginning of each year is marked with a list of New Year’s resolutions to improve our lives in some way. Our friends at R U OK? Day are asking you to make room for one more: Making 2017 a brighter year for everyone.
We all feel lonely from time to time. Throughout January, the home of Neighbour Day, Relationships Australia, is asking visitors to their website to answer three short questions on the topic of loneliness.
