Peer Support and Social Day

Socializing with others is a large part of Blind Citizens NSW. We meet on Thursdays for a day of social support, participating in activities, and having fun!

The day is spent catching up with friends and welcoming new members.

We challenge ourselves and have great fun with tactile and olfactory guessing games, mind games such as crosswords and trivia, proverbs and a range of other quizzes.

We would appreciate anyone who can share craft skills, or would like to assist in any other way. At present we are making items to sell to fundraise for our outings next year.

You will find a warm welcome in a relaxing environment, and maybe a few laughs along the way. For more information please contact us about peer support and social day
