Holdsworth Connect, in partnership with Woollahra Council
We believe connection is key to a meaningful and happy life. If you’re looking for company for a cuppa, a walk in the park or a simple conversation, Holdsworth’s Connect program, which matches people over 65 with like-minded volunteers for regular visits, might be just for you.
Our Connect Program, along with Woollahra Council’s Friendship Program and Men’s Chat Group, are linked to offer social support to older residents.
Through Connect, participants and volunteers are matched and connect at a time and place that suits them.
All Holdsworth volunteers undergo training and police checks.
