$78,740 raised so far


Since 1984 Open Doors has provided specialist grief counselling for pregnancy loss (abortion, miscarriage, IVF losses, ectopic pregnancy and stillbirth). The hidden grief of early pregnancy loss, especially abortion, can have long term emotional and psychological effects on those involved. Open Doors provides a caring, supportive environment for exploring all aspects of a pregnancy loss and assists clients to resolve long standing feelings of grief and trauma.

Services are all low cost (negotiable in cases of hardship) and include: counselling, psychotherapy, remembrance services for any pregnancy loss and weekend healing retreats for post abortive women, men and couples.

Open Doors also provides non-directive decision making counselling for women and couples facing unplanned pregnancy. Counselling is non-directive and not linked to abortion referral, ensuring clients are under no added pressure as they explore their options and access the supports they need before making their decision. Clients are able to access counselling for as long as they need before and after their decision.

This service is staffed by professional counsellors including psychotherapists and trained, supervised volunteers.

The Education arm of the organisation produces value based resources for schools and parents to help children and teens make healthy relationship and life choices, including the acclaimed resources 'Wonder of Living' and 'Resilient Kids' now in over half the schools in Australia.

Open Doors: Established 1984, Independent, Ecumenical Christian, no government funding.
