We Want to Help

By pulling on your Odd Socks you are demonstrating that you are willing to talk about mental illness.

Gather a group and have fun on Odd Socks Day raising awareness of mental health issues, reduce stigma, and show that you care about helping people with  mental illness.

Fundraising days are a great way to engage your staff, students and stakeholders and they show you care about a cause that will inevitably affect them directly or indirectly at some point in their lives.

We have lots of  ideas to help you fundraise and inject some oddness into your event.  Don’t forget to bring colourful odd socks to collect cash donations.

Please put your best foot forward, register your fundraising event now and join us in helping people with mental illness land on their feet.

Volunteering

Grow’s work is underpinned by volunteer contributions.  Volunteers help us on every level, from recording group activities to organising community events and leading the groups themselves.

You, your work colleagues, league or club can join in enriching volunteer opportunities at your local Grow branch, too.

If you would like to volunteer with us send us an email at national@grow.org.au and let us know where you are and when you are available so we can connect you with any volunteering opportunities through our national branch offices.
