MCCI’s Social Groups meet regularly so you can catch up with friends, share your culture and language or learn about others. Held at locations across the Illawarra and ACT/Queanbeyan regions the groups provide a variety of lifestyle, health and wellbeing activities and nutritious food. Door to door transport is available for those who need it.
