Support Events

We run a series of annual events to support families affected by CF. Keep an eye out in RED magazine and e-news for updates on these events.

Ladies Support Event: 

This event aims to provide respite, relaxation, pampering and networking opportunities for ladies within the CF community, including mums, partners, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and supportive friends. The event varies each year but may be in the form of a dinner or a high tea and generally involves a guest speakers, games and entertainment.

Sibling and Offspring Camp: 

This important event brings together siblings and children of people with CF aged between 8 and 16 years of age. It aims to provide young carers with the opportunity to feel special, to develop their own support networks with other children in similar situations, to enhance their knowledge and understanding of CF and to have questions that they may have answered in a relaxed and informal environment. It is also full of fun, action-packed activities such as canoeing, mountain bike riding, flying fox and abseiling, among others. 

The camp runs for two days with a different location each year to make it more accessible to children all over WA.

Celebration of Life Ceremony: 

This ceremony is designed to provide family and friends with the opportunity to pay their respects and look back on the lives of loved ones who have passed away from the illness.
People are always welcome to bring photos to display, to read a poem or to say a few words during the ceremony. This event is held at the Place of Reflection in the Kings Park Botanic Gardens, usually held in the first few months of the year.
