We have some good news - Australian governments have given the green light for us to help get the people of Australia swabbing again!

This green light is for a limited time only, while governments decide whether they’ll allow us to scale up to the level of swabbing we think is needed over the longer term. So we need your help to spread the word and make this little extension as successful as possible!

Thank you so much for all your support, the petitions you have signed, and the letters you have written showing your support for Strength to Give. We truly mean it when we say we couldn’t have done it without you!

If you need to get in touch, or have a personal story you would like to share, contact us at info@strengthtogive.org.au and follow our social accounts on Facebook and Instagram for further Strength to Give updates.

Now let’s do this, Australia!

The Strength to Give team.
