The WASP Weights & Strengths Program provides participants the opportunity to access low cost community-based physical activity. It provides tailored weight-based exercise suitable for all ability levels. WASP is facilitated by friendly, trained volunteers in a social, supportive atmosphere.
The program paces individual progress, improves balance, coordination and strength.
SEAT TO TOWN
The MSAOST - Mansfield Shire Offers A Seat to Town program is age friendly, volunteer driven, community led and anyone can use it!
Seat to Town offers regional communities a free-to-use and safe ride sharing service to increase transport options in regional areas and assist in people retaining their independence.
Volunteers sign up and list their regular driving journeys where they will have a spare seat. All trips are then listed in one place in a very easy to use app which is compatible with all Android and Apple smart phones and has been designed with over 55's in mind.
