The Compassionate Friends NSW produces a quarterly newsletter called FOCUS that is published in March, June, September and December of every year. FOCUS provides an update of the organisation and includes details about past activities, upcoming events, letter from the President, updates from Chapters, members’ letters and poems, memorials, photos, contacts and a sibling section.
FOCUS is posted free to new members from the first year of joining and then on a subscription basis of $35 per annum thereafter. This fee covers the cost for publishing and posting to members. FOCUS is available free to members who prefer to view it or download it from the web. Subscribing to FOCUS is usually completed when the annual membership renewal is completed, however members can change their option at any time.
FOCUS can also be subscribed by Professional organisation members. The subscription fee for Professional members is $50 for one year.
Subscription payment may be completed by supplying credit card details to TCF NSW or directly depositing into TCF NSW's bank account. If the forms are being submitted manually (not online) you can enter your credit card details on the form, or send a cheque or money order.
