Support Groups Queensland (SGQ) is a small active organisation and we could use your help.
We Are A Registered Charity, Donations Are Tax Deductible.
How will the funds be used?
- Provide practical equipment to help people learn new skills
- Maintain an up to date online register of over 2000 Queensland Support Groups, so anyone in the community, at no cost, can easily find a support group to help them.
- Train group leaders in the skills they need to run an effective group.
- Provide groups with an experienced worker to help them identify what they need to improve health and wellbeing, and the steps they need to take to set about achieving it.
Why We Do This?
People join support groups to help themselves. When they are quite unwell, sometimes they just need a bit of an extra hand. Sharing information and emotional support helps break down social isolation and reduces loneliness and depression.
People share a sense of “belonging”, and feel safer in the knowledge that they are not alone. The more people take charge of their own health and wellbeing, the less need for hospitalization, and emergency callouts, and less drain on the taxpayer dollar.
