Personal interest groups meet with others of similar leisure pursuits, enjoying each other’s company, opinions and shared ideas. Residents of all abilities and strengths are welcomed and receive support to network within the team and at their ability level. Personal interest groups benefit from a vast collection of support networks, such as community field trips, guest speakers, written information, residents and volunteers. Members of community based clubs and groups are encouraged to maintain connections and are assisted to do so.

Listed below are some of the groups and activities currently operating:

Many residents have a history that involves community service and this is the instigation for many fundraising events.

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea and Relay for Life are just two fundraising events in which Princes Court Homes participates in and supports. Students from local schools interact with residents gaining assistance with projects and schoolwork. In house raffles are a happy part of daily life fundraising to support a wider range of lifestyle choices for residents. Many benefits are derived from helping others including building self worth and a sense of belonging. We have recommenced our Annual Christmas Cake and Craft Fair which will hopefully be bigger than ever before.
