healthAbility

Provides a wide range of health, counselling and therapeutic services to the local community.

     
The Eltham and District Woodwork Club has been assisting the Social Support Groups for the frail, aged, dementia and acquired brain injury clients for some years. The Club Members prepare timber kits for small items such as boxes, trays and letter holders that they then help the members of the activity groups assemble.
     
This is one of a number of important ongoing community services carried out by the Club Members.
