Good Omen Goodeze Inc

Good Omen Goodeze Inc (affectionately known as GOG) began life as a Canberra based community needle-craft group providing personalised hand crafted comfort ‘Goodies’, for patients and their loved ones in need of comfort or warmth in the Canberra Hospital. We have proudly been supplying patients and families of the Canberra Health Services since May 2017 and the University of Canberra Hospital since 2019.  This includes patients in all areas, with a special focus on the Intensive Care Unit, Aged Care and End of Life Care.

In February 2019 we successfully piloted a Knitting for Mindfulness Program within The Canberra Hospital.  In September 2020 GOG applied for and won a ‘Covid19 Mental Health Innovations Grant’ which gave us the opportunity to provide a similar wellness program to the wider Canberra Community.  Further information regarding our Project can be found on our website under the ‘Community Threads Project’ section.
