Elaine looks forward to Friday lunch. Not only does she enjoy skipping cooking, she catches up with her friends.

The Friday social lunch group have been meeting together every Friday lunch for two years, and over this time have developed new friendships. Support worker Katie says, “It’s important to meet up each week. When people regularly come together they feel comfortable.”

Lunch at the bakery and then a spot of op-shopping is one of the Friday lunch events that Jenny enjoys. “We might sit down in a restaurant or sometimes have a BBQ,” she says. “We travel together and eat out together.”
