In Western Australia, hundreds of Peer Support Groups and other Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) provide crucial support for those living with rare, genetic, and undiagnosed conditions. During the current pandemic of COVID-19, these individuals are amongst the most vulnerable in our community.

Commissioned by the WA Department of Health (Office of Population Health Genomics), the project aims to understand the challenges faced by Peer Support Groups and NGOs working in this sector. ConnectGroups will also recommend support and training strategies that the Department can undertake to ensure the long-term capacity and capability of these services.
