Social groups

Our social groups are a great way to make new friends and try new things. Find out what social groups and activities are available in your area.

We specialise in supporting children, teenagers and adults with disabilities to achieve their individual goals and learn new life skills.

Social groups are a great way to build independence in the community, become familiar with navigating public transport and assist with time management skills.

We offer fortnightly social groups across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria. Talk to us about finding the right one for you!

What activities can I do?

Whether you like art, music, gardening, movies, being active or exploring Melbourne, we can help you join social groups that interest you.

We provide a wide variety of social group activities for children, youth and adults, such as:

  • music and comedy festivals,
  • sensory experiences,
  • live performances and shows,
  • interactive art exhibitions,
  • arcade games and experiences, and
  • many more great activities!

Activities can be offered one-to-one to individuals. If several clients are interested in the same activity, there is a possibility of a group booking being made and the staff to client ratio being altered to meet client needs.

Can’t find an activity that interests you? Tell us what you would like to do, and we can co-design your programs and supports with you.

Fees

All entry fees, food and activity costs are covered by the participant and their family. We provide service to people who have NDIS and fee for service funding. Staffing costs are billed separately, in line with NDIS price guide for flexible Core Supports.

Important information

  • Activities and program times may change due to weather, ticket availability, transport, participants and staff attendance. If this happens, you will be notified.
  • Please only express interest in activities suitable and appropriate for you or the person you support - considering their wants, needs and interests.
  • If you are booking into an activity that requires a pre-paid ticket or program cost, you are confirming that you have agreed to paying any out-of-pocket costs that have been outlined in your booking confirmation once received. You will be invoiced directly for this cost and will not be required to supply money on the day.
  • Prices of programs may change slightly due to online booking fees. If there is an increase in price you will be notified.
  • You will need a Yooralla Community Inclusion Service Agreement that includes flexible Core Support funding. If you do not have this, please get in contact with us to support you with this process.

What happens if I, or the support I support, can no longer attend a program they've been booked in for?

We understand things can change! As soon as you're aware you can no longer attend, please get in touch with us:

  • If you become unable to attend a program that you have pre-purchased a ticket for, any refunds will be in line with relevant activity venue cancellation policies.
  • If you're unable to attend a program that you are booked in for, you need to notify us seven (7) days before to avoid being charged 100% of the program support cost, as per NDIS guidelines.

What to bring

  • weather appropriate clothing and footwear
  • public transport is often used, so please bring a valid Myki card and money to top-up if necessary
  • water bottle and lunch, or money to purchase lunch, and 
  • medication and supporting documentation if required to take medication during the activity.
