Bev Farrugia has recently completed a successful year in the position of Senior Worker – Planned Activity Group. Here she explains the aim of the program.
“It’s really satisfying when a client picks up a new skill or reignites an old passion. Through the Planned Activity Group a couple of members are even learning the ukulele!” says VincentCare’s Bev Farrugia.
VincentCare Victoria’s Planned Activity Program (PAG) for the City of Melbourne provides an opportunity for social inclusion for people 50 years and over who come from a marginalised background or those who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.Starting with approximately ten members in May 2015, the team has worked hard to grow the group and have attracted many new participants, taking the group to almost 30.
