What is End Loneliness inc.?


The Loneliness Project was initiated at the end of 2016 by Kim Harrington, the Associate Vice-Chancellor of CQUniversity Rockhampton. The Project was endorsed by the CQU Rockhampton Region Engagement Committee (RREC) and project planning commenced with the active support and involvement from several RREC members. Desley Cowley, Justin Power and Ewan Filmer making up the core of the Loneliness Sub-Committee, with Kim Harrington and her Executive Assistants, Desley Cowley and Justin Power taking the Project lead.

Along the journey of the Project other community stakeholders became involved, Queensland Police Service, Central Queensland Hospital and Health Service, Central Queensland Multicultural Association and the Rockhampton Men’s Shed had particular interest and had participated in community forums, workshops and some committee meetings.

Phase three implementation has seen the project evolve and with the formation of a new Committee resulting in the creation of End Loneliness Inc.
