Combating social isolation
one connection at a time.
We facilitate purposeful connections providing hope, power and purpose in an era of decreasing social connections.
An experience of mental ill-health can significantly impact our social well-being with reduced social relationships
and increased social isolation. During these times, the best support we can find is from those who have been there before and have come through to the other side.
At Qonfr, we facilitate connections between people with mental health challenges and companions (traditionally called peer support workers) based on shared lived experiences. These connections are aimed to increase social cohesion and engagement, enhance self-confidence and self-esteem, and promote feelings of understanding, belonging, and continued quality of life.
Leveraging technology with shared experience and human to human connection,
we aim to combat social isolation and loneliness within the community by increasing opportunities for people to find strong social supports, to engage in positive social interactions and to make high quality social relationships.
As a team, we are diverse in our knowledge, skills, cultures, languages, interests and experiences. By bringing together our unique ideas and perspectives, we focus on creating solutions that are inclusive of all cultures and backgrounds and applicable to humanity as a whole.
