The Community Broadcasting Foundation is working to help connect Australia’s socially isolated and lonely to others through getting them involved with and engaged in community radio.

Groups that may benefit include people who live alone, who have a disability, who are immigrants, who are incarcerated, or who are single parents.

Community radio has an extended reach – over five millions Australians tune in every week, and 23,000 people volunteer at community radio stations – so it is well-placed to deal with this issue.
