Anna Losanno

2020 - Voluntary Assistance Group for Mature Italian-Australian Women in ACT

Anna founded 'Gruppo Volontario Assistenza Italo Australiano' (Voluntary assistance group for mature Italian-Australian women) in 1999 and has since worked continuously to assist hundreds of older Italian-Australian women in the ACT community.

She has worked to ensure links between Gruppo Volontario and a range of organisations and agencies, including the Red Cross, Carers ACT, Centrelink and CIT to ensure people can access services that meet their needs. She has regularly organised events, building on shared cultural and communal traditions as a cohesive support group, to enhance social connections and decrease social isolation.
