General Community Clubs
Invisible Illnesses Inc is a registered Not for Profit in person support and social group for those who suffer from an Invisible Illness in WA. We have a very active, friendly and supportive Facebook group for our members who discuss symptoms, share information and resources. We also have our public events page where we share all of our own events and fundraisers plus the markets we attend to raise awareness.
Over the last 2 years we have implemented many ideas making us a unique support group. We have an off-shoot group called "Helping Hands" which assists those who are having problems at home with housework, gardening etc. Our volunteers can also help with cooking, transport and shopping. We are a registered Centrelink approved organisation for those who have to volunteer for certain amount of hours to be able to receive their benefits.
Our Roaming Lunches are an informal get-together for people with an invisible illness and their supporters. They are a great opportunity to meet people who really do understand. These lunches take place in various areas throughout the metro and spreading into rural areas. People can talk about anything and everything not just their illnesses.
As well as our Coffee & Chats we hold numerous fundraising events throughout the year. Our most successful is generally our Quiz Nights. We also hold our annual Never Hide Your Wings Gala & Recognition Night. We frequently heard our members say that they couldn’t afford the cost of tickets, even though we have kept them at a minimal cost, so we are offering a layby system so they can pay their ticket & accommodation off over 11 months.
We have a Loyalty Program where we are asking business to give our members some sort of discount when they produce their membership card as well as placing a “We support Invisible Illnesses Inc” poster in their windows.
We are a self-funded group. Most of our income comes from membership fees, fundraising, grants and the few items we sell at different events.
We constantly advocate the awareness of invisible illnesses by attending many different markets, fairs, shows etc through the metro & rural areas.
