Be socially engaged with your community through our Connect Well Groups

Our Connect Well Groups provide activities to help older people or people with disability to live a healthier, more rewarding and socially engaged life.

Connect Well Groups provide a program of activities that maintain and enhance the daily living skills of all participants. The program of activities addresses a participant’s physical, social, cultural, emotional and recreational needs and provides opportunities to stay connected to the community.

There are many reasons to join one of our Connect Well Groups:

  • Affordable recreational, leisure and social activities

  • Meeting people and making new friends

  • Staying connected to the community and social interaction

  • Maintaining skills needed for living independently

  • Keeping the body and mind active

  • Respite for carer/s

Our Connect Well Groups are run from sites in Nillumbik, Whitehorse and Manningham.
