Social Support Program

Social Support Program

Social Support Groups are a great option for those who have difficulty getting out and about.

We offer full day and part day activities such as exercise, crafts, music and dancing, games, celebrations, quizzes and entertainers. Staff and volunteers conduct these groups. Minimal assistance with transfer, mobility and personal care can be provided.

There is a specialist group for adults with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) on Friday.

When:     Monday to Friday
Time:      10.00am – 2.30pm and some half day groups.
Cost:       Low and medium Income $15 per day (Additional fees may be charged for outings or special activities)
Transport: Some volunteer transport is available. We appreciate if your carer can provide transport or you use a half-price taxi to make your way to the group.

Location:  2A Gardeners Rd Bentleigh East
