Social groups provide opportunities for social contact for older people, to get support and encouragement when needed. They aim to provide this support via a network of social groups which are all independently organised via a Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary which empowers groups to remain independent and empowers individuals to take on roles of responsibility.
The network comprises of rural and urban groups. All members of the groups attend to make new friends, feel valued as a member of a group and partake in a range of social & recreational activities to combat social isolation. For more information call St. Michael’s Centre.
