What is Grief?
Grief is our response to loss. It is the normal, natural and inevitable response to loss, and it can affect every part of our life, but it is different for different people.
As well as our telephone and online counselling services, we deliver programs for children.
Our volunteers are the backbone of GriefLine. We are always looking for volunteers who, once selected, undergo specialised training so that they can deliver a caring and listening ear.
“Oh hello…I’m feeling quite lonely. I’ve had a chronic illness for a number of years and I haven’t talked to anyone for several days…it’s good to talk to someone.”
“I don’t have any family. My partner died and I feel very alone…I don’t have any children and no one really to talk to.”
“I lost my child recently, I just don’t know what to do.”
“I have got cancer. I live at home on my own and am very lonely.”
