Woden Community Service provides a range of social groups and outings for eligible people under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). 

We have a wide range of social groups to choose from including lunch groups, walking groups and outings to local and interstate venues. 

Our range of activities includes: 

Who can access social groups?

To be eligible for services under the CHSP you must: 

  • be aged 65 years or older, or 50 years or older for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 
  • require low-level, basic services 
  • not be receiving support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme or a Home Care package. 

How much does it cost?

Service users are required to pay a contribution towards the cost of services they receive from WCS for social groups and bus outings.  We recognise that sometimes circumstances may make it difficult to pay some or all of the contributions for service and we will always look at individual situations.

How do I access social groups and bus outings?

You will need to contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 and get an over-the-phone assessment. Please nominate Woden Community Service as your preferred service provider.

This service is funded by the Department of Health under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).
