Why we need donations and where do they go?

Counterpart is a service of Women's Health Victoria, a not-for-profit organisation. As a result of better screening and early detection programs we are seeing more women diagnosed with cancer. We want to be able to continue to offer a quality support and information service to all Victorian women, their families and friends and we need your help to do this.

Your donation will help us to continue to provide and expand our key services including:

  • free events on a range of medical and wellness related cancer topics
  • ongoing training and support of our skilled Peer Support Volunteers
  • regional/rural support and wellbeing days across the state
  • Bridge of Support program of in-hospital support for women who are undergoing treatment or attending an appointment.

Counterpart has helped thousands of people affected by cancer. Our dedicated Peer Support Volunteers (women with a personal experience of cancer) and staff give women living with cancer a sense of hope.

Being able to discuss difficult issues openly and light-heartedly was a huge relief for me and helped me to feel ‘normal’ again, for the first time, I felt I was no longer alone.
