Our monthly Social Support Groups (SSGs) are a great way for Forgotten Australians to meet up, talk about shared interests and take part in group activities and events which are designed to support your health and wellbeing.

SSGs also provide advice and recommendations to Open Place about how we can continue to best support the needs of Forgotten Australians.

We run 14 SSG’s across Victoria, hiring meeting facilities, ensuring a ‘cuppa’ is available and a meal or afternoon tea whilst socialising with fellow Forgotten Australians and organising group activities such as outings or guest speakers.

Each SSG is organised by an Open Place staff member and receives an annual budget to assist planning.

Open Place organises activities decided upon by group members.

How do I get involved?
