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 began to curate the community experience in office buildings in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Perth.
Coming into an office where you feel disconnected can be one of the most isolating experiences adults face. With increased working from home, the office need to be a destination, a hub and a community that you want to be a part of.
The Good Work program aims to build and maintain happy, healthier, kinder communities at work. We foster a sense of belonging that reduces loneliness and contributes to a positive work environment throughout an entire building.Office Communities
The Little BIG House is a place to get together. A welcoming, safe space where you can walk in to talk, meet, share stories and laugh, or sit and read a book. Connecting with our neighbours is so important in creating a happier, healthier and kinder community.
Located at 16 Flour Mill Way in Summer Hill, it really is a Little house nestled amongst the surrounding apartments, where BIG things happen. Spread across two floors its the perfect location for all types of events.The Little BIG House
