NCACCH hold regular Women’s Groups giving community members the opportunity to come along to have a chat and meet other women. The types of things you could expect at our Women’s Groups can include; arts and craft activities, having a guest speaker come along and talk to the group (for example a diabetes educator do a talk about preventing or managing diabetes or a dietitian come along and do a cooking demonstration on healthy meals), or activities like exercise groups (tai chi, walking groups) and more. We’re open to input from the women on what they would like for future Women’s Groups. If you have any questions please give us a call on 5346 9800.
