Due to the rapidly changing environment around COVID-19 and to ensure the health & wellbeing of our service users, staff and the broader community, we have made the decision to close face to face services including Drop In, Out West and Social Saturday until further notice.

Accessibility note: If you have any additional accessibility needs (for example, if you need someone to meet you at the entrance of our building), we need at least one week’s notice (preferably two weeks) so that we can make sure there are enough volunteers onsite to accommodate you. Please send an email or call our admin line on (02) 8594 9555 (option 3).
Social Saturdays is a safe*, inclusive and relaxed space for LGBTIQA+ folks, where you can be yourself and meet new people, join in a game or activity, or simply hang out and socialise.
The group is facilitated by trained volunteers and the format is informal with some planned activities and some unstructured social time too.
Activities could include board games, cards, baking, ice breaker activities, charades to name a few.
Light snacks and soft drinks are provided. It is a drug and alcohol free space. Group size varies.
Even if it is your first time, you will be made to feel welcome.
Social Saturdays is a social group, not a therapeutic or counselling group. Participants and facilitators are unable to provide counselling or therapy.
All our groups follow our Safer Space Guidelines, so that everyone feels included and safe, both physically and emotionally.
Social Saturdays usually meets fortnightly but there are sometimes exceptions. Please see the calendar below (or here) for specific dates and exceptions.
You can also join our MeetUp page to receive automatic email reminders for this and some other groups.
