Activity Centres and Friendship Clubs are popular ways for active seniors to meet with their friends and participate in a range of activities.
Currently there are 11 Friendship Clubs, all located within the Sydney Metropolitan Area, run by volunteers and supported by JewishCare. Many Clubs operate in conjunction with local Synagogues and other community organisations.
These Clubs aim to reduce isolation, loneliness and lack of stimulation by providing regular social meetings which provide a sense of belonging, mutual support and cohesiveness amongst members.
