The Compassionate Friends Qld offers a range of online support meetings that can be accessed from the browser on a personal computer, an app on your phone or tablet, or via telephone.
Online support group meetings are conducted using Zoom Meetings video conferencing with online chat. Members will receive email notifications with a link to register for the meetings. If you are not a member, please contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Once you have registered for a meeting, you will be sent a link to join that meeting. Each meeting has its own link so you need to register for each meeting you wish to attend.
