Our Services & Programs

Work-ordered Day

The work-ordered day is unique to the Clubhouse model. Having a sense of purpose to our day is the key to a happy & healthy outlook. The Junction Clubhouse is open Monday to Friday, 8:30am – 3:00pm to give the sense of a regular workday. Our members nominate themselves for tasks to support the function of the Clubhouse. Try your skills in reception, support other members in peer interactions, serve tea & coffee, or prepare food in the kitchen. The choice is yours and we are here to support you!

Social Recreation

The Junction Clubhouse offers social outings on Saturdays each fortnight. This is a way for members and staff to develop rapport outside of the usual Clubhouse setting. Activities include park picnics, beach BBQ’s, lake trips, bowling, movies, dinners, fishing, local markets & festivals, etc.

 

Creativity Centre

We hold an art and creativity group on Tuesdays from 10:30am. No experience necessary.
