One Another Community is home to people who embrace kindness
Our dedicated team of 60+ volunteers from all over the globe have come together to make our mission of encouraging social kindness and enabling authentic community connections a reality.
One Another Community
Our mission at One Another is to reduce isolation and loneliness. We’re doing this by providing a trusted platform that allows those who need the help to access the innate kindness of their neighbours. By enabling a safe, secure community connection, we can create a ripple effect of kindness. Kindness is the way we can change our world.
How it started
In mid-March 2020, I was on a trip to Europe with my 3-yearold son to visit my grandma. The Spanish lockdown started, and COVID-19 began to really affect people across Europe. At this time I felt so comforted to be surrounded by our loved ones and that we were well stocked with living essentials, however I quickly realised there must be so many out there who aren’t so lucky…
I felt so strongly that I wanted to create a solution for those needing support back at home in Australia. Friends and colleagues I’d spoken to made me realise that many others are also greatly wanting to offer their help, however unsure how to go about it.
The idea for One Another was born – a smarter and more efficient way to match those who WANT to help, to those who NEED it, in their local community. This includes people who are usually fiercely independent, however now need help due to the current economic climate and international pandemic.
Ultimately, our purpose is to encourage people to help ‘one another’ out as good neighbours do. We are all working together on this passion project to bring a secure, national platform to Australians and provide a trusted place, where they know they can go to ask for and to offer voluntary help.

We are making asking for help, and giving help, as easy as possible
Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much. – Helen Keller
No judgement. Inclusive. Not here for everyone, but here for anyone who needs it.
We still have a choice, and those choices still have the power to do something.
Support is born from genuine empathy, and it is why we exist and a result of our existence
Safety through integrity
It’s only through each person’s two way trust that the community can innately feel safe and secure.
