Update - Peehu Gupta - Planned Activities Program Coordinator at ADEC

Approved photo smallThe Groups Activities area has entered an interesting phase. We are currently trying to set up new groups in the west of Melbourne. Very soon, we will start with two High Needs Arabic groups. We may also start a Karen Support Group, Sudanese Support Group and a Greek Carers Support Group in the near future. We have recently started with a new Afghan Wellbeing Group too. Owing to the great success of the Afghan exercise classes last year, we were fortunate enough to get funding again from the City of Casey to continue providing the exercise classes this year.

Greek Carers Group to start at Werribee

ADEC is planning to start a Greek Carers Group in the west. Why not come to our information session?

EFFIEsmallThis group will be based in the Werribee area.


Sometimes the only people that know what you going through is those with the same burdens, and the same challenges. This is an opportunity to support eachother and learn from one another.
