is an Australian support and information network. CIFS was initially formed by parents and family members of loved ones caught up in abusive groups.
The network has grown to include families, friends, former members and concerned individuals working together towards a common goal, to provide support and develop awareness for those affected by high demand groups or cultic relationships.
This ‘weekend workshop’ is for ex-group members only, and not family or friends. If you have left an abusive group or religion, this weekend is for you! Places are limited and numbers will be deliberately kept low to enable personal interaction. The weekend is non -religious and accepting of all belief systems.
