Utp 2022 EOFY fundraising campaign for 15 Cigarettes

Donate Now

Researchers have found that loneliness is just as detrimental to health as smoking 15 cigarettes per day. Research also suggests that young people and older people are most at risk from the negative impacts of loneliness.

This project is Utp’s antidote to loneliness in our local community. We’re bringing together artists, young people and local seniors in circles of conversation, skill-sharing and creativity. And we’re working closely with our Bankstown-based community partners, Community Minds and Olive Tree Women’s Network, to demystify and destigmatize loneliness and to increase feelings of connectedness and well-being through the vehicle of the arts. You can support this important work by donating this EOFY.

You can support this important work by donating this EOFY. All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Funds raised through this campaign will go directly to realising the project including paying artists to lead these circles of connection and creativity.
