Group and other referrals
Some of our clients are individual or group referrals from other ‘Not For Profit’ organisations, government agencies and community groups. We welcome these referrals.
Many of our SuperGrans organisations collaborate with others to provide personal development services with the objective of ensuring the client is receiving a comprehensive range of assistance to meet all of their needs.
We really value these opportunities and are always open to new initiatives to collaborate with.

Where do you learn these life skills?
IN YOUR OWN HOME
All SuperGrans organisations offer to work with you in your own home, one on one with a specially selected and trained volunteer who works under the guidance of our Supergrans Coordinator.
If you prefer, many of the branches can work with you one on one at their premises where they have kitchens and often gardens.
Some people prefer to learn in a group environment and many of the SuperGrans also offer workshops to meet this need. Coordinators and volunteers work together to provide you with a fun, fulfilling and informative time.
