Information for support groups
The Genetic Support Council actively facilitates the development of Genetic Support Groups by providing expertise, information and technology including office facilities and meeting room that can be accessed by members to further enable and support their activities.
We are able to assist groups with the development of resources such as information packages, pamphlets and the printing of promotional materials. Members can publish articles and advertise and promote their Support Group’s activities on the Genetic Support Council website and in our newsletter the “Gene Advocate’.
Staff are on hand to assist groups in researching information regarding particular genetic conditions or predispositions and help keep members aware of matters of interest such as changes of legislation etc. There are no fees payable to become a member of the Genetic Support Council WA at this time.
