If you are planning a hospital admission please feel free to give us a call so we can come in and visit you. We can then come in for a chat, maybe bring you a treat or two and we may be able to help you out with assistance while you are unwell if you need it.

One on one peer support
Have you ever wanted to speak to someone who understands CF, without having to explain what it is?
Our peer support porgram provides opportunities for people with CF, their family and carers to have a chat with a peer volunteer. Our peer volunteers are members of the CF community including; parents, siblings, grandparents and individuals with CF. Peer volunteers are available to have a chat, share information, experiences and provide a listening ear.
Find out more online or contact us on email@example.com or phone (03) 96861811.
For women with CF
Our Facebook group for young women with CF, Sister5Roses was prompted by a group of our young members who were looking for a space to connect online. This group is a place for young women with CF (18+) to connect with others who share a similar journey.
The Sister5Roses group can be joined on request, and is a safe place for you to share your stories and hear those of other young women. We invite you to post, comment and share things that interest you ... either CF-related or not. We're hoping this online community will be a place where you can drop in for a chat, make new friends, have a laugh and share your views on things that interest you. We're looking forward to receiving your friend request.
Support dinners for family members
Each year we host a number of support dinners across Victoria. These dinners provide an opportunity for family members to meet others who are, or have been in a similar situation. They are a great chance to meet new people and catch up with some old friends and share stories, experiences and resources.
