Loneliness Project - Free event

Event Details

Day Thursday 11:45 AM - 2:00 PM Duration 24 November 22 - 24 November 22 2 hours Venue 52- 54 Knees Rd Park Orchards

The Park Orchards Community House & Learning Centre, in partnership with Manningham Learns, and funded by Manningham City Council, invite you to join their Loneliness Project event.

Preventing loneliness is at the heart of what community organisations do, and this event aims to shed light on the stigma around loneliness and the effects it can have on us. 

24th November, 11:45am - 2pm

This FREE event will include a light lunch, guest speaker Ffion Walker and more!

"Ffion works part time as a Speech Pathologist specialising in Stroke recovery and Young Onset Dementia. She has written, produced and directed a short educational video on the effects of living with an acquired language disorder.

Ffion is a volunteer speaker for Beyond Blue, a national organisation that works to raise aware-ness about anxiety and depression, reduce the associated stigma and encourage people to get help.
Ffion became a Beyond Blue speaker because she spent many years of her adult life managing the debilitating effects of anxiety. She has a passion for educating others and wants to reduce the secrecy and shame that many people feel about having a mental illness."

We will be offering a Middle Eastern inspired lunch - generously prepared by Shella, our cooking instructor. There will also be French pastries prepared by Laetitia, our French Patisserie Trainer for a sweet snack! Our lunch is being funded by Home Instead, a national provider of high quality, relationship-based, in-home care for ageing Australians.⁠

This event is free and we welcome everyone to join us! Registrations are essential.
