Let's End Loneliness! YES, it’s a big goal but together we can make that happen

Nationwide

No one likes to feel lonely but it can happen to anyone.

At different stages of our lives and for different reasons we can all feel lonely - a student living away from home, a young mum home with bub, someone whose partner has died, after a relationship breakup, or moving to a new country or community. There are many reasons. But there are also many solutions.

The New Zealand Coalition to End Loneliness is a group of partner organisations who want to increase understanding and fight stigma about loneliness in New Zealand. These partner organisations include; Age Concern New Zealand, Alzheimers New Zealand, Carers New Zealand, RNZRSA, Salvation Army, St John New Zealand and Student Volunteer Army.

The Let's End Loneliness website is a hub providing resources and advice to help individuals, communities and workplaces breakdown barriers to connecting and supporting people who are lonely.

Your donation can help support this vital mahi and help tackle loneliness within Aotearoa. It will be used to support the running of the coalition, maintaining the website and to produce resources.

In the future, we also want to run a nationwide social awareness and promotional campaign to breakdown the stigma around being lonely. Your donations will help us action that - Let's End Loneliness together!

About us

We make a difference to the lives of older New Zealanders through respect and empowerment.

We help combat severe loneliness through our Accredited Visiting Service and we stop older people being abused and neglected through our Elder Abuse and Neglect Prevention Service. We also keep our older Kiwis happy and healthy with our Health Promotion programmes.

We work hard to make sure that every older person feels valued, respected, socially connected and safe.
