Mosaic’s Social Club
What a difference we make how you enjoy your life.
We invite all our clients to sign up to become a member of our Mosaic’s Social Club. It is absolutely free, and gives you access to our full suite of welcome services at our community resource centre. You can pop in any time on your own, with your caregiver or family, to read the newspapers, have a coffee or tea, join in a game of scrabble, dominoes or cards, read a book or just talk to a new friend.
