Local Support Groups

We have provided as many links as we can to help connect, bring together and build a community of support and understanding. We will continue to grow this page, the more that we learn of other groups. And please, always feel free to contact us with suggestions of other social groups. The bigger we get, the stronger we will become.

Listed here are advocacy groups, peer support groups, community groups and social outreach groups. These groups aim to break down isolation for people living in rural and regional Victoria; working towards building acceptance for individuals; being involved in the pride community; and general health and well-being.
