A social community life isn’t just about giving to a local group or community. Here’re reasons to inspire and motivate you to develop social connectedness:
- Improving your language skills
- Meeting new people
- Enhancing relations between your community and others
- Experiencing and celebrating different cultures
- Keeping abreast with technology and updating your skills
- Developing self-esteem, confidence and life structure
- Advocating for change in your community to make it a better place through new approaches and ideas.
- Easing back to work after an illness or bringing up a family
- Building job contacts – getting references, meeting employers in the local social community and improving your CV.

A social community life isn’t just for adult and seniors. People of all ages can benefit from a feeling of belonging and social connectedness.
Your contributions to the social community would make a difference! And, that’s what matters. In return, you get something that’s invaluable and priceless despite your age or stage in life.
