COVID Connect

A phone call to keep you socially connected.

Good social connections are essential for all aspects of physical and mental wellbeing. While many of us are staying at home during COVID-19, it can be easy to feel isolated.

If you are not in regular contact with others, our COVID Connect service can help you.

One of our volunteers would be happy to call you – once or regularly – for a friendly chat to help maintain or improve social connection.

What is COVID Connect?

COVID Connect is a free service from Australian Red Cross to provide support and community connection to people who are feeling socially isolated as a result of COVID-19.

COVID-19 has impacted all Australians in one way or another. So it’s really important that no one faces it alone.

Who is this service for?

COVID Connect is for adults of all ages. It is available to anyone who is not in regular social contact and is experiencing isolation or loneliness.

Note: It is not a service for people wanting assistance with their mental health or those who require assistance in a crisis.
