Get Connected Workshops

Loneliness and social isolation are associated with a range of poor mental, physical and socio-economic outcomes for people – these informal gatherings invite people from the community to attend when they feel they have no-where else to go.
When: TUESDAYS (fortnightly)

Times: These informal workshops commence at 9am, as there is information provided to the group we would really appreciate that clients arrive on time - thank you.
