Get Involved

The NCCG relies on the generosity of our donors whose ongoing support allows us to develop and deliver services independently and with a focus on quality and compassion

Our programs are funded by individual and corporate donations. We have calculated that it costs around $4,000 per year to support a grieving child. Very few families who attend the Centre are in a financial position to pay this amount. All donations and sponsorships are appreciated. Donations $2 and over are tax deductible.

These volunteers take the role of Support Workers in our children’s support groups.They must complete the following three day courses; ‘Core Course In Bereavement Counselling’ and ‘Working With Bereaved Children’. For more information call 1300 654-556 or email us.
