Community Connections with Social Support
Remaining active and social is an important part of staying mentally and physically healthy. However, various factors in our lives can affect our ability to get out and enjoy life and the company of others.
Social support empowers you by giving you the right level of help and support for you to go out and enjoy yourself in your much loved community. Our friendly team will pick you up from home, take you out to the place of your choosing, whether its to a community activity, the cinema or helping with your errands, you are in control.
