We are very grateful for the ongoing support of our members, as this support is critical for reaching our mission. Our members provide us with the resources to provide the necessary support required for those in need.
We take pride in our Staff, Volunteers and Members as these are the pillars to us reaching our mission and goals. To show our gratitude to our existing and new members we have provided a range of benefits. These benefits include:
Sometimes the simple things are challenging and hurt, and we can take days to recover from simply doing our housework or gardening. To help support our members we have an offshoot group called Helping Hands. The aim of this group is to have a list of people who can help members of Invisible Illnesses with their everyday needs.
For a small fee of $15 per hour, you can receive help with cleaning, gardening, general household chores such as washing, making beds, folding etc. If you are unable to drive, you can access help to do shopping, and get to appointments or events. Subject to the availability of volunteers

We are always looking for different ways to support our members so when we add a new initiative our members are entitled to any discounts that we offer.
However, our efforts alone are not enough to solve making different conditions in the community visible. We are in need of financial support to fund our efforts in our continued goal to raise awareness and support those with an Invisible Illness in the community. This is why your membership fee is so important to us.
In addition to the great services, you gain access to, your membership supports our efforts to raise awareness and support those with an Invisible Illness in the community.
