The Letterbox Project

The Letterbox Project is a letter writing initiative to enable people across Australia to send handwritten letters to those who are feeling isolated and lonely

Isolation and loneliness are significant health and community issues, which have become more acute during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Letter writing is a safe way to provide a connection to older adults and those who are the most vulnerable in our community.

Through a secure system, participants can sign up either to write and receive a letter. The letters are then checked prior to being safely delivered on to their recipients. The letter writers, including schools, families and individuals, have taken the time to tell stories, send an art, small gifts and poetry through the post to brighten someone’s day.


Over 5000 people have registered to write letters. If you would like to write or receive a letter, you can sign up at
