Social activities for older people and events to meet old and make new friends
Social activities tailored to you
Having a lack of social support is related to negative impacts on health and wellness, particularly for older people. Your Side provides a variety of social support events for Australians over the age of 65 (or 50 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples) to prevent social isolation and to contribute to better psychological and physical wellbeing. We coordinate a range of activities and day trips in the community to extend your social connections, keep you healthy and active and to simply enjoy life. Our activities are designed around your interests with other like-minded people.Get Support View Services
