Meet A Friend Socially (MAFS)

Meet A Friend Socially Group outline

Build lasting friendships and connections with other young adults who are going through the same life stages. Transitioning from high school into finding employment, TAFE or university can be a challenging milestone in life. Tackling lifes challenges with someone else who is going through the same thing, makes it so much easier.

The small group (4-6 people) is run by our speech therapists and is designed to offer a safe, casual and friendly space for young adult VisAbility and Kites clients to meet some friends, grab a burger and have a laugh in a relaxed setting.

As well as building confidence, social and communication skills, more practical aspects of life such as catching public transport, ordering food and drinks and money management will be enhanced.

Who would suit this group?

This group is for young adults between the ages of 17-19 who are due to leave, or who have recently left school. This can be a difficult phase and the group aims to ensure that bonds, friendships and support within the vision impaired community are maintained.
