Connecting with Community

One-third of Australians say they are not part of any community or social groups. But there are numerous benefits to connecting with a community, including:

  • Providing a sense of belonging
  • Making friends and reducing loneliness
  • Improving mental wellbeing
  • Finding support in difficult times
  • Connecting to people with similar concerns and worries
  • Getting encouragement and support to develop new skills
  • Giving purpose and meaning to life

How to find communities:

  • A community might be location-based – for example, many suburbs in Victoria have Good Karma Network Facebook groups, which enable people to connect and collaboratively solve problems.
  • There are communities for all kinds of interests and hobbies, both online and in person.
  • A spiritual or religious congregation can provide a feeling of connection to something greater than ourselves. 
  • Charities or volunteer organisations can offer a community and provide an additional sense of purpose by offering your time and service to others.
  • Cultural groups can offer opportunities to reflect on common memories, speak (or write) in a first language and learn more about your ancestral background.

Technological IT support, assistance with transport and mobility, and companionship are all available to help you find your community through support from the fabulous workers at InPlace Care.
