Social support groups and programs

Remain active, independent and connected

If you are 65+ and would like to remain independent, active and stay connected, we run weekly social groups. The groups provide opportunities to enjoy outings, activities and make new friends.

 

Register yourself easily with My Aged Care

To access Aged Care help you need to complete a quick registration.

Once registered with My Aged Care, your needs will be reviewed by an Assessment Officer. You will then be provided with more information regarding suitable groups and activities.
