TOMNET Inc. is The Older Mens Network

Established in Toowoomba in 2001, we are a not for profit group, offering a range of support services for older men in regional, rural and remote locations.

Older Men Supporting Older Men

TOMNET provides older men with opportunities for mateship, the chance to re-connect with the community and cope positively with life after loss. TOMNET is a non-religious and non-party political organisation, and all men are considered equal.

Mateship, Wellbeing and Support

If you are over 65, you are in the group with the highest risk of suicide. This is due to social isolation, loss of partners, loss of career and work networks, loneliness, bad health and a loss of independence.
