Supporting the Supporters meetings

At the GSNV one of our main roles is supporting support groups from inception to maturity. We believe support from your peers is highly valuable and that your peers can be a great sounding board. We understand that starting up and running a support group can be rewarding, however, it also comes with many challenges. We would like to begin a regular support group "Supporting the supporters" event where support group leaders, or those who are thinking of starting a support group can come together for a few hours, and share ideas. Support group leaders with experience can mentor the support groups that are just starting out, but also those just beginning, can bring fresh eyes to problems that established support group might be struggling with. 


21st  June (6-7:30pm) - Topic:  Fundraising Q & A.


13th July (6-7:30pm) - Topic: Growing your support group, volunteers to paid staff. Sean Murray the CEO of the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (AMDF) will be presenting.
