Who are we?
Our organisational aims
- To provide quality counselling, support groups and associated activities, and practical services, support and advocacy, for people in Australia living with grief.
- To research the causes and effects of grief on individuals, culture and society, and to educate the community about the grieving process and its implications, with a particular focus on the link to homelessness.
- To provide information, services and support aimed at minimising grief including end-of-life care, advanced health directives and funerals.
- To affect changes in policy regarding how dead, dying and grieving people are treated by corporations, companies, and government departments, as well as any other associations where services are found deficient.
Our broad embrace and understanding of grief gives WAGS the remit to develop and run a range of services, programs and support that are targeted to different areas of concern. In addition to providing grief counseling and support opportunities for people whose loved one has died, our charity also provides specific support and services for people who are homeless through our Street Friends program.
