Social Support Programs

Our Social Support Programs provide a range of activities throughout Brimbank. We cater to

  • older people;
  • people with a disability;
  • their carers; and
  • people with dementia.

We also offer some culturally specific programs.

A main meal is often provided as part of the program and help with transport to the centres. 

Recreational Programs

These lifestyle programs are all about providing fun, relaxed community outings.

We’ve developed these programs to boost independence and to give some of the more frail and/or disabled members of our community a new opportunity to socialise. If you live independently or with a carer, these programs offer a huge variety of experiences and a chance for adventure!

We offer a range of activities that cater to different interests, ages and abilities.

Community Transport

Do you find it hard to get around due to age or a disability? We have vehicles dedicated to providing quality community transport.

Our transport service operates Monday to Saturday for eligible older residents and people with a disability using community facilities such as:

  • Senior citizen clubs
  • Social Support Programs
  • Shopping
