HEAR FROM OUR VOLUNTEERS
Each month nearly 1,400 volunteers share friendship and create belonging with thousands of Rosies patrons. These close-knit teams find real joy in this mission and you can get a taste of that by hearing from some of them.
5.6 million Australians, that is one in four of us, are lonely almost all of the time or on a regular basis.*
66% seek friendship as a remedy to loneliness.*
Rosies reaches out to those most in need, those people who are lonely, abandoned, socially isolated and marginalised within our communities.
Whilst many organisations are increasingly providing awareness, support, and referral, the greater human need is the need for friendship and unconditional acceptance during difficult times. Our wonderful Rosies volunteers aim to do just that, providing a community of friendship and belonging.
Over 98% of our work is funded through kind donations from our local community.
