Facebook Discussion Group Launches

September 2016

The Standing Together Online Support Group has launched!

Created as a closed facebook group, the forum provides a moderated online platform aimed at helping empower resource worker families affected by the loss of a loved one.

The group is strictly for individuals who have lost a loved one. It is also “closed” to protect members and provide a safe online platform for them to develop supportive relationships with others within the group who may share similar experiences.

The hope is that this will help broaden group members’ social networks and reduce the risk of isolation for those individuals who have experienced loss, and who may benefit from talking to others facing similar challenges.

So if you, or someone you know may benefit from this group, this is how to join.

Go to the facebook page and lookup, ‘Miners’ Promise – Standing Together’. Read the guidelines for becoming a member and then send a personal message to the Administrator. You will need to confirm the following:

a) your connection to the resources sector;
b) how you have been affected by loss; and
c) who, if anybody, recommended this group to you.

If you are having any difficulty accessing this group then contact us directly on info@minerspromise.org.au.
