Being part of a community means that we care for one another regardless of age, race or creed. At Alex Gow Funerals supporting our community is paramount and is shown in the way we provide service and care for our families.
For over 175 years our mission has remained unchanged, to care for the families of South East Queensland. We pride ourselves in being a leader in our industry but more importantly we pride ourselves on the high professional standard of care and service we provide.
As an organisation, we have become increasingly aware that those who have lost a family member, loved one or close friend deserve the best of care, so they can understand the loss and grief process and not feel so isolated.
Alex Gow Funerals is committed to supporting those who care for the bereaved, particularly those who work in aged care. Alex Gow has now created a bursary to assist those wanting to pursue further studies in loss and grief.
This bursary is offered to chaplains and social workers [qualified or still studying] and those working with the bereaved who wish to further their professional development in the areas of loss, grief and bereavement counselling. The bursary is valued up to $2,000 and is offered as a contribution toward the cost of accessing Postgraduate courses, Workshops, Conferences and Seminars to expand their knowledge and increase their ability to better care of those suffering loss and grief in our community.
It can be used to assist in the payment of course fees or for the purchase of text books and resources associated with further studies.
“It takes a lot of strength to make your way through grief, to grab hold of life and let it pull you forward.”
