We have received sufficient support from ConnectGroups which has allowed us to have the use of Zoom.  I am not sure that we would have been able to achieve this without the financial support and also being able to have the practical support and training has made such a difference. The grant submission process and interim support has been excellent.

Could you please pass on to your staff my sincere thanks for the support I have received over the past 3 years. My first meeting was at the Self Help and Awareness Day on the bridge at Perth Cultural Centre. It was a cold blustery day, but the warmth soon generated from the amazing people I met, like myself out there showcasing what we do. I then met you, WOW such a personality, such commitment to your organisation. I was to discover just how much over the next three years.

Setting up and running a support network involves juggling a lot of different things and everyone at ConnectGroups has made such a difference through their encouragement and support. Thank you so much for helping us to build a better service for our community into the future.

The networking that arises because of our connection with ConnectGroups is invaluable. It is informative to have discussions with other group facilitators who often confront the same difficulties as ARMS’ group does. It also helps to know just how many other support groups there are and who and what they stand for. It is a positive and motivating experience from my point of view that the staff at ConnectGroups are unfailingly friendly, cheerful, motivating and helpful.


The ConnectGroups team are simply marvellous and we cannot speak too highly of the service and support that they provide to us and other similar self-help associations. They are always there to listen to our concerns and to provide positive and helpful advice and guidance in resolving issues. On behalf of myself and all the other Medically Retired Police Officers, associate members and families involved with our association Thank you very much team!!

Just a note to thank you and your staff for your support this year and in particular the grant which allowed us to have new brochures in the GP practices across the state. They were a big success and we are going to continue with the program! We delivered 53 support group sessions over 7 locations, including several new regional groups over the last year, so we are pleased with this and you really did help contribute very much to this.

Without the support of the staff at ConnectGroups we would not be where we are today. We have used the resources and funding provided to our advantage to build our membership base, increase our visibility, become professionally organised and step over hurdle after hurdle. Now with helping us get incorporated the potential for funding is staggering and our future is golden.
