Introducing Bris West Connect

Warm Pathways is setting up and providing an online space for Bris West Connect

Prolonged loneliness (combined with social isolation) is a major yet underappreciated determinant of health, placing individuals at greater risk of premature death than obesity, inadequate physical activity, or air pollution. With more adults than ever before living alone and a large proportion of older adults without access to online connectivity tools, this becomes a fertile environment for an epidemic of loneliness.

Bris West Connect exists to tackle these issues by reduce social isolation in the western suburbs of Brisbane through networking and sharing information, keeping people informed regarding options available within the community and where necessary be catalysts for referral of the socially isolated and lonely.
