The primary aim of GOCSA’s Social Support Groups is to link eligible consumers to centre-based day programs and transport. Through Social Support Groups, GOCSA provides an opportunity for clients to attend and participate in social interactions which are conducted away from the client’s home and in a community venue, allowing a constructive means to reduce isolation and loneliness.  Activities support social inclusion and maintain community connectedness.

Activities include shared lunches, group outings, education and information sessions by guest speakers to widen clients' interests and awareness on various issues  (i.e. aged care rights, elder abuse, My Aged Care, safety, health etc.)

Transport assistance can be provided to access these programs.
