Affordable, fun, local activities with door to door transport

Please call 03 59715210 or email: socialclub@peninsulatransportassist.org

At Peninsula Social Club (PSC)

We believe that nobody who wants company should be without it.

We offer fun and  affordable social activities for seniors and older people with disabilities. We offer lunch groups and musical matinees as well as door to door transport and social companionship.

For your first activity, we cover your transport costs.

Its all part of our mission to end social isolation and loneliness for people living in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula.

Research tells us that feeling lonely is as damaging to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day (Holt-Lunstad 2015).  Unfortunately loneliness increases the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, depression and even dementia (Hawkley et al, 2010). Check out the interesting video links below.

Feeling lonely is a very common experience, it can be fleeting, felt for just a day, or it can be a longer term emotion.

Beat the blues, pick up the phone  03 59715210 or email socialclub@peninsulatransportassist.org and join us for lunch or a musical matinee.
