A partnership between The Compassionate Friends Victoria (T.C.F.V.) and The Gianna Centre. We offer the following peer support groups:
T.C.F.V. - supporting parents when a child dies and T.C.F.V./Siblings - for supporting bereaved siblings.
At T.C.F.V. you will find the special understanding of those who have "been there". There are no pressures to talk; to cry or not to cry; just a chance to be yourself; to have time-out.
T.C.F.V. offer a safe haven, a listening and understanding ear, a place where you can let down the masks, and if you wish, talk about your child who as died. T.C.F.V. offer no miracle cure, just comfort and the consolation and hope that the broken threads of your life can be picked up again.
The groups meet each month in Bendigo. For details of meeting venue and time, phone The Gianna Centre on 5442 4644 or 0428 400 159.
