Q-Connect - Get connected to personal well-being

 

Q-Connect is a well-being (pilot) program for LGBTI people 60+ each week exploring different experiences to spark more enthusiasm for life.

The course will provide opportunities to sample a range of physical and creative activities, have meaningful discussions, make connections with other community groups and expand our social contacts.


The program has been designed by and for LGBTI+ elders, and focuses on 7 wellness themes.

Exploring ways to improve health and well-being, in a safe environment, with food to fuel the journey, under a rainbow roof.

A great deal is said about wellness, well-being and active ageing, and this course will explore what this means for us individually.


Q-Connect comprises of both physical and social ‘taster’ activities that are provided from within the LGBTQI(A) community.


Get connected to your mind, body and soul, every Friday, with Q-Connect and activities such as:

Music & dance
