Wesley Social Support helps you make new friends, meet people from your local area, join a group, or go on a short trip.
We organise a host of activities, including:
- book clubs and hobby groups
- visiting markets and historical places of interest
- men’s sheds
- outings to films and exhibitions
- computer groups
- picnics and sausage sizzles
- day trips
- art and craft groups
- community lunches.
Our team will tap into existing networks and activities through local councils, neighbourhood centres, churches and other service providers. Our aim is to encourage you to make new connections that support an ongoing sense of community.
Who is it for?
Wesley Social Support may be able to provide assistance if you are:
- a person with minimal assistance needs living at home
- a person with more complex needs living at home
- a carer of a frail aged person
- a person with disability who requires support and assistance
- a carer of an adult or child with disability.
Wesley Social Support services may be accessed through both Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) services and Home Care Packages.
How does it work?
If you think you could benefit from Wesley Social Support, contact us directly and we’ll discuss your situation and what kind of help you require. We’re also happy if a friend, family member, GP or other community agency representative contacts us on your behalf.
How much does it cost?
Fees for social support vary according to the level of assistance required. This service is subsidized by the Australian Government and Wesley Mission takes into account a person’s ability to pay.
