HEAL Services are available free of charge to people 65 years and over residing in the Blue Mountains and Lithgow areas, however eligibility may be dependent upon current services received and provided by other commonwealth program streams.

SOCIAL & SUPPORT
GROUPS & ACTIVITIES
We normally have a host of social and support groups, activities and community events, however due to COVID-19 we have had to suspend these for now. We are however running some of our social and support groups in our Virtual Community Room via Zoom and Teleconference. So please contact us and follow us on Facebook if you are interested in joining or running a virtual group.
