TCFQ and the Coronavirus

The Compassionate Friends Qld cares about the health, safety and welfare of all of its members, volunteers, staff as well as the general public. Read the TCFQ response to Coronavirus


TCF Queensland holds support group meetings in various locations around the state once a month. Our meetings are a safe environment for bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings to express themselves in the company of others who have lost a child or sibling and understand their grief.

At the meetings you will find people of all ages whose children have died from all ages and causes – people who will listen and understand what you are feeling. Like you, they are going through the grieving process. It can be a great comfort to be in the company of others who have been through a similar experience.

Read about what you can expect at a support group meeting.

Some of the TCFQ meetings below also allow you to attend online using Zoom video conferencing. You can register to attend one or more of these meetings from the event links in the calendar below. 

Update : Due to the ongoing likelihood of snap lockdowns in Brisbane Southeast – we ask all members to register for face to face meetings (at TCFQ in Greenslopes) as well as online from the calendar below or
