OWN NSW exists as a network of member groups within the state, some of which operate as Wellness Centres.

OWN groups are self-determining and vary according to their member’s needs and wants, and are reflective of their location.

Groups meet on a regular basis (whether it be weekly, fortnightly or monthly) to gather socially or to offer members a range of activities, such as guest speakers, discussions, outings, film and book groups, and facilitated classes.
