Social Support Programs

Our Social Support Programs provide a range of activities throughout Brimbank. We cater to older people and  people with a disability and their carers, and people with dementia. We also offer some culturally specific programs.

A main meal is often provided as part of the program along with assistance 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 for socialising. 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

Bus Hire

Some buses are also available to community groups to hire on evenings and weekends, depending on availability and eligibility. Download our Guidelines for use of Community Transport or contact our Community Transport Officer on (03) 9249 4787.
