Social Wellbeing - Group Activities
Social Wellbeing Groups
Gunning Community Care facilitates a number of social groups to help foster inclusion and reduce isolation for residents in our regional communities. Gunning Community Care invites suggestions for more groups such as a book group, mothers or fathers groups, shopping outings.
Monday Social Group
A chance to find friendship or meet new people, Gunning Community Care's Monday Social Group provides residents with an opportunity to leave their homes and farms for regular outings and activities.
The group meets at the Tony Foley Centre Meeting room from 10.00am each Monday, with regular activities including craft sessions, shopping trips, bingo, cooking and picnics. Community support staff and volunteers are on hand to assist. Morning tea and lunch is organised for a small cost.
Monday Social Group is open to anyone in the community, but particularly those who might live on their own or remotely. Please call our Group Coordinator Rebecca McCamish at Gunning Community Care on 4845 1166 ext 1 for further information.
Gunning Men's Group
Gunning Community Care supports the facilitation of a local men's group which meets fortnightly for regular outings and group catch-ups.
The group fosters companionship and social interaction and is supported by Gunning Community Care volunteers and community health staff.
Outings include lunch at nearby village pubs or cafes or visits to movies or car shows. Events for 2020 will be listed here soon.

Gunning Community Care's recent new Group Activity is a Coffee Club that meets fortnightly on a Thursday. This group provides residents the opportunity to get together with a group of friends and attend a local café for a nice lunch and a cuppa without even worrying about driving. A community support worker is also available on the day.
The Coffee Club is open to anyone in the community, but particularly those that may live on their own.
