Social & Community

Caringa understands the importance of friendships, inclusion and doing the things you love.

It feels good when you connect with your community, make friends and do the things you love to do.  It can be lots of fun and is also one of the best ways to improve your general health and wellbeing.

Caringa offers supports to help you get more out of life, meet people who share your interests, increase your community involvement and build the skills you need to become more independent.
