Meet Alex

My name is Alex and I am a participant of the Women’s Social program at MDS. Some of the activities and outings that I have been lucky to attend include Disney on Ice, Fashions on the Field at Club Menangle, Movie Nights, trips to the Bondi Beach & Rocks Markets and the Sydney Comedy Festival.

I enjoy being a part of the group because it enables me to have a form of independence and see & experience new things. I’ve especially loved making new friends from attending the group. We all have things in common and get on really well. The Women’s Social group has helped me to get out of my comfort zone with trying new things. It has helped me to overcome my anxiety around social events and being in the wider community.

I always look forward to the upcoming events each fortnight.
