Social Buddy is a FREE program that supports those in the community experiencing loneliness and social isolation










How does Social Buddy work?

  • We match people who need a buddy with volunteers of similar interests

  • Volunteers make friendship phone calls or video calls on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis

  • Calls are up to one hour

  • Volunteers are trained in open listening and making friendly connections

  • Supported with compassion, care and meaningful conversations

  • Social Buddy advocates for inclusivity and provides a safe space for LGBTQIA+, non-English speaking backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and other communities.

* Social Buddy is not a counselling service and does not offer advice, coaching or other professional or mental health services.
