Engaging communities in tough times

During this extraordinary period of physical distancing brought on by COVID-19 we need to ensure that we can still connect people, in the safest way possible, with each other and with the outside world.

To effectively slow the spread of the coronavirus, we have all been asked to physically distance ourselves and some will need to self-isolate. But we are also very mindful that during these periods people are at risk of social isolation and can feel overwhelmed, impacting on their mental health and wellbeing.

As the Senior’s peak we have developed a specific COVID-19 engagement platform to reach out to Queenslanders as they age and the services that support them to identify their needs and to enable us to provide credible information.

We want to hear from Queenslanders about what is happening in communities throughout the state and identify gaps in information. People’s local communities are becoming more important as our movement become more restricted.

We are also inviting people to share photos and videos of how they are staying active and connected to inspire others.

Over the coming weeks and months, we will be adding different opportunities to the Hub for you to share your stories and experiences.
