We offer a range of services including nurse consultations, recreational and therapeutic groups, peer to peer support program, support groups and exercise physiology through the Brain x Body Fitness Studio.
THRF Group’s Under Our Roof project provides four family-style homes for country cancer patients and their families to stay while receiving treatment. These homes encourage patients to have their support networks around them, keeping everyone together during a challenging and difficult time.
Life. Education. Art. Feelings. The LifeCycles Schools Program – the LEAF Project is for Year 7-9 students, and provides a unique opportunity for participating schools to become leaders in developing and normalising the sensitive discussion around death, dying, grief, loss and life cycles. This program is supported by THRF Group charity Centre for Creative Health and THRF Group – Palliative Care.
Together with the University of South Australia, THRF Group supports the Healthy Newborn Project, giving remote doctors and midwives across Australia the opportunity to attend vital ultrasound training which is administered back in their communities.
