Australian Health Directory


Health-related support organisations and information resources

Australians are fortunate to have access to a large number of organisations dedicated to support, research and the dissemination of information about specific areas of health. They aim to improve the quality of life for people affected by a particular disorder or a group of disorders and to assist carers and family members. Most of them are member-based, not-for-profit organisations, funded by governments, donations and fundraising activities. They rely heavily on volunteers and pro-bono work by professionals to achieve their aims.

The services offered by these organisations may include support, counselling, fellowship, information, advocacy, education, research grants, telephone help lines, newsletters, public awareness campaigns, social activities and resources for health professionals.

We invite health related foundations, councils, support organisations and community-based support groups to feature their services in this category. We provide free community service advertising for not-for-profit participants. We invite visitors to nominate support organisations and self-help groups for listing.
