The Plug-in is working with researchers in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Flinders University to understand how attending a regular community lunch program might impact an older person’s sense of social connectedness, isolation, wellbeing or loneliness.

Why is this project so important?

The Flinders University EAT research will examine the feasibility of holding shared lunches on a large scale and this first part of the project will help the researchers identify and understand better potential participants for the main project.

What’s involved?

We are looking for Influencers who may be at risk of social isolation to participate in an online focus group with Flinders University., College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

The project will be conducted online via Zoom as a focus group on Thursday, 9th July 2020 at 2pm.

We are looking for people who are:

  • Aged 65 years or older
  • Living alone, independently, at home
  • Not working or volunteering for more than 2 days a week
