The Australian-Greek Welfare Society’s Chronic Illnesses Greek Peer Support Group programs continue to support the needs of the Greek people affected by chronic illness.  If you have been diagnosed or care for someone diagnosed with Cancer, Diabetes or Heart Disease you are encouraged to participate in these groups.

Participation in the groups will give you the chance to:

  • Connect with others
  • Share common experiences
  • Get support from other group members with similar health conditions and challenges

The Greek Cancer Peer Support Groups meet monthly in Clayton and Brunswick.

The Greek Cardiac and Diabetes Peer Support Groups meet monthly in Oakleigh and Brunswick.

We invite all members of our community which suffer or care for a person with those chronic illnesses to participate in the groups. Speakers with knowledge and experience address the special needs of each group. Educational and informative printed material is provided to the group members.

The program is funded by the Department of Health of Victoria.

For more information about venues and specific dates of each group please visit our website: or contact Tania Samartza at the Australian-Greek Welfare Society
