It costs $5 per year for those with welfare cards and $2.00 each meeting for consumables. If you do not have a welfare card the group costs $10 per year.
They also get together for an exercise program at Bluewaters Fitness Centre each Wednesday from 10.30am – 11.30am. This costs $6 per session to use all gym facilities.

Support groups provide people in similar situations the opportunity to come together to support each other, share practical tips and to help break down the sense of isolation that can often be experienced when living with a lung disease. There are a large range of support groups held around Australia that are facilitated by individuals and community groups. Lung Foundation Australia can help connect you to a support group near you.
