With Christmas now just weeks away, the Australian Red Cross has launched their Season of Belonging campaign.
The scheme encourages us to do what we can to prevent others from feeling lonely or isolated.
It comes off the back of research showing one in four Australians feels lonely almost all of the time, or on a regular basis.
The initiative urges locals to meet their neighbors, volunteer, say hello to someone new in your neighborhood, check on someone who may be in trouble and be kind on social media.
Red Cross CEO Judy Slater says a simple phone call, or an invitation to Christmas dinner can make the world of difference to someone who is isolated.
