Bendigo Support Group

Bendigo Support Group


The Bendigo Support Group was established by a small group of people who invited Leonard Cheshire to Bendigo. This was some forty years ago.


There are twenty supporters on the mailing list
Two supporters have been sponsoring the education of residents at Raphael in northern India for more than forty years.
Four supporters have volunteered at the health facility, Klibur Domin, in Timor-Leste


The Bendigo Support Group welcomes enquiries concerning the work at the Homes in Australia, at Mount Gambier, SA and Ivanhoe, VIC and the two overseas Homes; Raphael in India and Klibur Domin in Timor-Leste
