About the agency
Manningham City Council's Planned Activity Groups (PAGs) are available to residents who have been assessed as eligible.
PAGs provide a comprehensive range of services, programs and activities that give practical and emotional support, and social contact for older people and people with disabilities. The purpose of PAGs is to focus on the individual needs of each person, and maintain and develop skills which will promote independence, by providing group activities outside the home.
PAGs operate in various locations throughout the municipality. PAGs that specifically assist people from culturally diverse and non-English speaking backgrounds are also available.
As a general rule, volunteers with these Groups stay for a long time and vacancies are rare. There are, however, currently two vacancies:
* An Italian speaking volunteer for our Thursday Italian Group.
* An Italian speaking person to play Italian card games with a resident of a local aged care facility on a weekly/fortnightly basis.
More information A vacancies webpage will be added later with details of any vacancies in the PAGs program.
