Social support groups
Our Social Support groups are a great way for older people to have fun and socialise with others. Together with Merri Community Health Service, we plan activities for older people that:
- take place on weekdays
- include lunch
- include transport to and from the venue (if needed)
How to attend a Social Support group
To use a Social Support group service, you first need to make a referral.
The way to make a referral depends on your age and whether you are an existing client of a Moreland Aged and Disability Service.
This referral can be made by you or you can give a relative, friend or doctor permission to make the referral for you.
In Moreland, there are over 70 senior citizens groups. Seniors groups are for older people from all different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The groups meet at different venues around Moreland, and provide an opportunity for older people in the community to get together for activities and socialising.
You can contact us to find out more about joining a seniors group or other social and recreational opportunities.
