Social Support Groups

The Supported Social Groups, also known as The Planned Activity Group (PAG), offers activities for older adults who would like to socialise with people of a similar age and ability.

The program is designed to support individual needs within a group setting.

There are specific days for people with dementia and also for people who are frail or have a disability. These programs provide stimulating activities which assist in maintaining independence in the community whilst providing carer support.

Other groups offer outings and centre based activities designed to maximise socialisation.

We are often looking for volunteers to help our staff. You can find the latest volunteering positions here.

Why people come to the group?

  • to get out of the house and
  • have some fun
  • to meet new friends
  • to enjoy a home cooked lunch
  • to go on outings
  • to do indoor activities

Morning tea and lunch are provided (special dietary needs are catered for), and transport is also available.

Some of the activities include:

  • board games
  • general knowledge games
  • carpet bowls
  • woodwork
  • arts and craft
  • chair based exercises
  • outings
  • music
  • gardening


The cost is $10 for the day.
