COSHG is a network of self help and social action groups. These groups are made up of and controlled by people who are directly affected by a particular issue. For example:

  • disabilities
  • health
  • ethnic background
  • gender
  • parenting
  • mental health
  • low income
  • peace
  • sustainability
  • public transport
  • housing
  • injured workers
  • grief
  • allergies
  • unemployment
  • sexuality
  • addictions

Self Help Groups are groups of people who get together with others 'in the same boat' to support each other, share experiences and knowledge, and work together to improve their quality of life. Groups are involved in a variety of activities, such as meetings, information, phone support, producing news letters, social gatherings, advocacy and campaigns.

COSHG acts as a clearing house and resource for people who want to contact groups, start a group or maintain a group. COSHG has an extensive database that includes self help groups and relevant organisations throughout Victoria.
