This deficiency in clotting factor produces a wide range of bleeding episodes or “bleeds” usually into joints, muscles or major organs and can occur spontaneously or as a result of trauma or injury. The bleeding is generally stopped by an intravenous injection of the deficient clotting factor. “Bleeds” can cause permanent damage and change to the effected muscles, joints and major organs resulting in sometimes severe disabilities. This condition is usually diagnosed soon after birth making the affected age range “birth to adult”. For more information on bleeding disorders please visit theHFA website .

HFQ provides support and advocacy to men and boys that are affected and their families around Queensland. HFQ also provides support for people and their families affected by von Willebrand disorder and other inherited bleeding disorders.

 This support is provided through

  • Community interaction such as Community Camps, Youth Camps and Men's and Partners Weekends.
  • OBE – Old Boys Executive monthly luncheons.
  • Ladies Luncheons – wives and mothers get together every 2nd month for lunch.
  • Regional Luncheons (Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Toowoomba) to support those members of our community living out of Brisbane.
