The Prader-Willi Syndrome Association of Victoria Inc. (PWSA VIC) was established in 1978 by parents of children affected by the syndrome and is totally run by volunteers. It has a long history of providing help and information. Our membership focuses on Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia although anyone all around Australia or around the world is welcome to join.
Our members include parents and carers, extended family members and friends, professionals and interested supporters.
For an annual membership fee of $50, membership of PWSA VIC also gives you automatic membership of the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association of Australia.
Members receive a quarterly newsletter with up to date information as well as email notifications of upcoming events and dates and the opportunity to participate in research trials.
PWSA VIC offers access to in-service training and visits to day care centres, kindergartens, schools, work places and adult centres in Melbourne as well as interstate and rural areas via video conferencing.
As a member you will be invited to PWSA VIC run social events including our Time Out Camp, Family Day, Christmas Party and General Meetings and Information/Education sessions and workshops for free or at discounted prices.
