Connecting with people we relate to helps us be well and happy. The Sub-Branch will help members build social networks, and also be a place where they can learn more about health and wellbeing. Wellness initiatives currently being planned include:
- Social events for members and their families;
- Mental and physical health and wellbeing education seminars and resources;
- Access to health and wellbeing activities; and
- Information and guidance on external government and non-for-profit wellness services.
