Social Support Program

Social Support Volunteer - Aged and Disability

The Social Support Program meets on a weekly basis providing social and recreational opportunities for older residents who have difficulty accessing mainstream community/senior’s groups. Activities include entertainment, games, craft, sing-a-longs, and regular outings. Volunteers work as a part of a team with program staff, in some cases the Volunteers assist in the kitchen to produce a meal or socialise with participants i.e. games, activities and outings.
