The Letterbox Project
The letterbox project sends handwritten letters from across the country to people experiencing isolation and loneliness. We source writers, manage and approve all letters, and deliver them safety to vulnerable people.
Launched in early 2020, the Letterbox Project quickly became a national service supporting tens of thousands of people. We have over 13,000 writers and are averaging over 500 letters being sent each week into nursing homes, disability services, and to lonely people across the country. There are over 270 schools participating, and a growing list of large corporations getting involved.
With the support of the community, we are working to ensure that every individual has access to safe connection and community, allowing them to stay visible and valued.
