Social Support Group
There are times when the group attends a special event; for example, a cruise or restaurants – you may be requested to pay for the cost of the event prior to the day. This is because the service may have to book and pay for a certain number of guests and unfortunately some venues require full payment even if not all guests attend. Because of this there could be times when you pay for a function and may not receive a refund if you are unable to attend. Receipts for weekly contributions will be issued upon request. Additional monies collected in advance for special functions, donations etc. will be automatically receipted.
Clients are asked to contribute toward the cost of meals and transport provided to them. Individuals are also responsible for personal costs if the group is attending a venue where there is an entrance fee, meals or some other fee involved.
