Get involved with your local community by joining one of our 
Get  Social events!

WHAT IS GET SOCIAL?

Strong & Capable’s Get Social program runs regular activities every month for Co-op members, NDIS participants and the general public. 

These events provide opportunities for participants to try new activities, meet other members of the co-op, get out of the house and hopefully build some fantastic friendships with like-minded people in the community. From mini golf nights and wildlife park trips to gaming on the cinema screen, our events are designed to be fun and inclusive. 

Importantly, these events are not just for NDIS participants; they are open to the public as well. Here at Strong & Capable we are strong believers in making our events as accessible as possible and focus on bringing affordable, out of the box ideas to life. 

Bookings can be made via the Strong & Capable Eventbrite page, of which you can find linked below. Otherwise, you can purchase tickets directly from our website by clicking “Buy Tickets” under each event.
