Membership of The Compassionate Friends is open to parents, grandparents and siblings who have experienced the death of a child. Being a member will assist this organisation to assist you and other parents in the same situation.

Benefits of Membership

Parents and families come as they wish to our support meetings for as long as their needs are met. It is not necessary to attend the support meetings to access our other services and resources, such as telephone listeners and library materials. Present at every meeting are parents who have worked through their own grief and who can empathize with the bereaved family and truly be with them.

Parents and families receive a copy of the bi-monthly newsletter free of charge for the first six months. To continue receiving the newsletter after this introductory period, a membership fee will be payable (see below). 

Members also have the option of placing a tribute photo of their child on our Memorial Wall, memorial and birthday notices in the newsletter, as well as accessing our library services and attending the annual grief and loss seminar.

TCF Membership fosters a feeling of belonging to community that really understands your grief. By becoming a TCF Qld member, you are also ensuring parents and families can continue to be supported after the loss of their child.
