Social Support Programs

Social Support Groups and Centre Based Respite

    Our Social Support Groups provide a range of activities throughout Brimbank. Social Support Groups provides an opportunity for clients to attend and participate in social interactions which are conducted away from the client’s home and in, or from, a fixed base facility or community based settings. We also offer some culturally specific programs.

    A main meal is provided as part of the program along with assistance with transport to attend. Suitability to attend specific programs will be determined by the client’s specific individual needs and transport requirements.

    The service delivery team will contact you to complete an occupational health and safety checklist at and to discuss your service plan, role and responsibilities and your fees.

    There is a fee for the service depending on your income.
