What is the Social Networking Group?
In this group, people with and without disabilities come together to socialise. We hang out and chat, play games, and talk about friendships and relationships. We treat everyone equally. It is important to us that everyone feels welcome.
Do you want to come along?
If you would like to make new friends and get out more, come along! Meet new people, learn about relationships, how to use social media (for example Facebook), and get more confidence. This group meets in Sydney.
The first Thursday of every month from 5pm to 8pm.
This group meets in Sydney.
5pm-6pm: Sydney University.
6pm-8pm: We head off to a local pub or restaurant to have a meal and socialise with each other.
