In her 2020/2021 Statement of Intent the Advocate outlined the community priority campaigns for the year. Among them was Human Connections in Latrobe.
Building on the 2018-19 mental health priority project and the 2019-20 COVID-19 priority project, this campaign has a dedicated focus on social isolation and loneliness in Latrobe. The campaign takes a placed-based approach to identify opportunities to increase social connections across Latrobe and build on existing relationships, social networks and work occurring with local community groups and through funded services.
It aims to identify the breadth of programs that have an impact on preventing and/or limiting social isolation within their communities.
