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.

Our Story

The Little BIG Foundation is on a mission to inspire joy and empower a true sense of belonging in communities by creating opportunities for neighbours to get to know each other better. Whether you live in the apartment next door or work in an office building with a shared lobby, all the little ‘hellos’ add up to the BIG things in life.

Australia’s loneliness epidemic is coming to a tipping point. Nearly half of Australians don’t have neighbours they can call on for help. We are withdrawing from community groups and participating less in civic activities. We even say hi at the letterboxes or in the lifts less frequently than we used to.

In 2021 we launched our first community space, The Summer Hill Little BIG House, in a master planning residential community, and in 2022 we launched little BIG ideas in five office communities in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Perth.

Our Founder

The BIG Foundation is founded and funded by EG, a leading Australian real estate fund manager and property developer who seeks to curate communities and have an ongoing community development.

Our Team


B.I.G. stands for ‘Build in Good’. It’s our unique approach to encourage every person that we meet to think about how they can build a little kindness, neighbourliness and ‘good’ into their lives. It’s not something you ‘do’ on occasion. It’s a way of living that is ‘built-in’ to who you are.


Nothing great is achieved in isolation and we are always on the lookout for incredible organisations doing likeminded work. If you have a common agenda and are open to continuous communication and knowledge sharing we would love to partner with you.

Some of our incredible partners are listed below.
