Our Social Support Groups provide interest-based activities and outings for older people, including people with dementia, as well as people with an acquired brain injury or neurological disorder.

The weekly groups assist people to keep well and stay connected with other people. They also provide a respite for carers.

Group activities are designed to meet the individual needs and interests of clients and include:

  • General socialisation
  • Picnics and café lunches
  • Outings
  • Art & craft
  • Gardening
  • Cooking
  • Gentle exercise & water exercise
  • Walking
  • Music enjoyment
  • Dementia support and care

We also have groups for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds including Italian, Chinese, Turkish and Cook Islanders.
