About Us

Beginning as the Zipper Club in Canberra in 1986, Heart Support Australia was formally established as a charity in 1989 providing support, information and encouragement for people who have been affected by a cardiac event. Patients who’ve experienced a cardiac event such as a heart attack are twice as likely to die prematurely compared to the general population, making secondary heart disease prevention essential for our community. Heart Support Australia’s mission is to facilitate the transition from hospital to home by providing the physical, psychological, and social support to help reduce the risk of a secondary cardiac event for as long as is needed. We do this by coordinating and facilitating peer support groups. The Canberra Peer Support Group provides a local and covid-safe forum where people with a heart condition and their families are able to support each other, share information and encourage each other in day-to-day living. Studies have shown that providing peer support to people affected by a cardiac event, can improve their overall health and wellbeing, helping to reduce their risk of a secondary event.

How your donation will help

Assisting cardiac patients in the Canberra, ACT region for over thirty years, Heart Support Australia now needs your support to survive. Money raised will firstly, help to continue facilitating the Canberra Peer Support Group and assisting its existing members, and secondly, provide local cardiac rehabilitation centres with Heart Support Australia information & referral packs, that will assist recent heart-event patients to receive our free peer support group membership services. Your generosity will help us to continue to reach those who have been affected by a heart event, and their families and carers, and provide them with the support and information they need to improve their quality of life and help reduce their risk of a secondary heart event.
