If you haven’t heard of us, we’re the Little BIG Foundation, set up to tackle loneliness in Australia by developing places, programs and events for social connection. We want all Australians to live happier, healthier and kinder lives through feeling connected to their community and neighbours.
Better connected, more resilient communities engage life’s joys, seek out fun and create happiness. We thrive in the small moments which make life worth living.
We are increasing endorphins, dopamine, adrenaline and knowledge about how to have a healthy body and a healthy mind.
We believe that when people regularly practice kindness, they become addicted to the ‘feel-good’ emotions, which ripples into the rest of the world.
The Little BIG House is your neighbourhood hub. We hope you’ll find it a welcoming, safe space where you can walk in to talk, meet, share stories and laugh, sit and read a book or host your event for the community. If it’s “good for the hood”, we want you (and your ideas) here!
A space to find an activity you enjoy and can do for life.
A space to find time in your day to notice how you are.
A space where we know each other’s names, faces and stories.
A space to keep learning and try new things.
A space to give generously to others.

We help volunteers and community hosts to make a BIG difference in their neighbour’s lives. We are already working with a huge number of awesome locals. But they can’t do it alone. If you want to help, or have an idea or skill to share, why not volunteer? We think volunteering should be easy and fun for you.Volunteer
We know there is something very special about Little BIG Communities and we want to better understand how neighbours create a sense of belonging in these places.
Each year we ask our community to complete a survey to better understand the sense of connection, what matters most to those living in the local area and how we can best serve the community.Read the full report here
