Social Support Groups

Social Support Groups (SSGs) provide social activities for eligible frail aged people living at home, and aim to meet their needs and interests in a manner that promotes participation and enjoyment. They also allow home based carers some respite.

Social Support Groups are a great way for older people to share their wealth of knowledge and life experiences in a friendly, warm and welcoming environment.

Morning tea, home style cooked lunch and afternoon teas are provided.

Planned Activity Groups operate from Beeac Community Health Centre and also from Winchelsea.

This program is partly funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. Visit the Department of Social Services website ( for more information.
