Do you find it difficult to get out and about? Our excursions are a great opportunity to get out of the home more often and meet with others.

We run a monthly social outing in partnership with Access Sydney Community Transport for people from a variety of backgrounds. We welcome people who are culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD). Come and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Greater Sydney and meet new people at the same time.
