We're more than a service provider - we're a community, and when you join Minda you become part of it! With social clubs, coffee clubs, family dinner nights and an array of fun social events, all fully accessible, we've got your social calendar sorted!
Our events are hosted at our North Brighton location, but if you're a Minda client or family member at any of our locations you are welcome to join us!
Just a note though - while our events are fully accessible, if you require support to attend you will have to arrange to bring your own staff.
International Day of People with Disability
The biggest day on the Minda social calendar, IDPwD is all about celebrating you!
Our North Brighton grounds are converted into a fully-fledged carnival, with amusement rides, live entertainment, petting zoo, roving performers, BBQ lunch and more! Everything, including lunch, is free of charge for Minda clients, their families and staff.
Activities are available for all abilities, and the BBQ includes minced and moist, pureed and thickened drink options for those who need them.
The 2022 IDPwD will be held on Friday December 2.
Everyone in the Minda community is welcome to join us, we can't wait to see you there.
(We hear there might even be a visit from a certain jolly man in a red suit, with a gift for all attendees!)
Outdoor Fun Events
We think warm weather is a good enough reason to celebrate!
Once a month, during the warmer half of the year, BBQ lunch, chocolate mousse, live entertainment and fun activities turn our lawns into the ultimate backyard party. Everything is free for Minda clients and their families and staff so come along and join the fun.
In the colder months we take the fun inside at INC Cafe for our monthly Coffee Club.
Our volunteer band The Village Players provide the musical entertainment, and we provide the coffee and the infamous chocolate mousse. Come and join us for a great time in a fully-accessible space and ward off those winter blues!
INC Cafe is open to everyone so come on down and enjoy the delicious coffee INC Cafe has to offer.
Looking for something to do in the evenings? Why not come along to Social Club, held on a Thursday once a month at INC Cafe from 6 - 8pm.
Each month there's different activities, entertainment or a theme to get involved in, all free for Minda clients and your staff. Come along, try some new things and make some new friends!
Only $5 for a snack and a drink!
**Clients must be accompanied by support staff**
Every month we welcome our volunteer bagpipers who bring their fantastic piping talents to Minda Brighton so everyone can enjoy and dance to their tunes. They even take requests. You may even like to join the band march around the Minda site finishing at INC Cafe for a well deserved coffee.
The bagpipers can be found at the Rotunda from 1.30pm - 2pm
