Hi there, I'm Mea. Founder of Connected AU, lawyer, writer and mother.
Inspired by my late grandfather and moved to action by the sobering statistics on loneliness in Australia, I launched Connected AU in early 2020.
Connected AU has grown rapidly from our humble beggnings to a purpose-led organisation that is making a real, measurable impact.
While I started this organisation with a mission to support` lonely, isolated and vulnerable people in our community, the overwhelming support for Connected AU demonstrates a greater need for more genuine connection throughout our whole community.
Together with my wonderful team, we deliver programs designed to provide connection, community and companionship.
Loneliness is indiscriminate, everyone feels it as some point in their life, so it was important to us to develop programs for all demographics. Our Letterbox Project is a tangible way to connect for all ages, but we have a particular focus on supporting senior Australians, people with disabilities and chronic health conditions. Our Online Hobby Groups are open for all ages, but were developed to be more inclusive for a younger demographic (18 - 75).
The momentum and growth of Connected AU since launching has surpassed my wildest expectations. And it’s because of people like you, who care enough to take action, that we’re able to make a difference in the lives of tens of thousands of Australians.
Thank you so much for stopping by to learn more about what we do.
