How to build social connections 

Communities battling to recover from the bushfires and floods now have the added load of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Maintaining social connections are even more crucial, including for businesses and their employees that are now operating from their homes. Social connections can help address psychological and social needs and prevent ongoing mental heath issues arising.
