We have two shopping services to help you.

Our Centre has a weekly list shopping service for those who are frail, elderly or disabled. The service (cost $4) enables people to remain in their own home and be independent.

We also have our Shopping Service Bus (for frail, aged and disabled customers). Shoppers leave the Centre at 10am (arrangements can be made to pick up those unable to come to the Centre). They are driven to the shopping centre and then home with their groceries. (Cost $4.) Our bus goes every Tuesday, alternating between Eastgate Bondi Junction and Marrickville Metro. For details please phone the Centre on 9357 2164.
