Our partners support us in a variety of ways. Our collective goal is to provide continuity of care in the support of mental wellbeing for community members experiencing grief, loss and associated trauma.
We value our community and business relationships and the support that many organisations and individuals provide us. Griefline would like to acknowledge and thank the following organisations and people for their ongoing support.
Ambassador for Griefline
Sue Foley – Manager, Murrumbeena Community Bank
Griefline and PHN working together to support those in crisis.
Through our Policeline initiative, Griefline and PHN, supports 6 counselling sessions by volunteer supporters, to those victims of trauma who are referred by police members.
This initiative supports individuals during the crisis moment until they can source professional and other supports.
Our trained volunteer supporters do an amazing job holding people’s grief , loss and trauma in extreme situations such as sudden death.
Griefline is proud and grateful for the funding provided by PHN to continue Policeline over the next 3 years.
South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN) works primarily on behalf of the Australian Government to improve local health care. Their aim is to be able to ensure all individuals access the right care, in the right place, at the right time, by improving access to existing services, commissioning new services to improve health outcomes, and encouraging GPs and others to innovate
Residents in Melbourne’s south-east who want to improve their mental wellbeing can now subscribe for free to Nellie, an automated SMS (text message) service run by South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN).
When people subscribe to Nellie, they receive regular, friendly text messages that check in on their wellbeing.
SEMPHN works closely with health professionals and patients implementing My Health Record, allowing people to view their health information securely online, from anywhere, at any time – even if when they move or travel interstate. There are strict rules and regulations about who can see and use My Health Record to protect patient’s information from misuse.
In the digital dependent world, a professional and targeted website is vital for any organisation.
As many NFP’s experience, Griefline struggled to secure additional funding beyond operating costs to build a purpose driven website. The funding has allowed us to develop a dedicated grief and loss resource hub where help-seekers can access a range of tools and information such as videos, downloadable tip sheets and guides, psycho-education and more. We have also been able to create a Volunteer Portal that volunteers can securely access to find resources, guidelines, rosters and in the future, online training modules.
The project is an important addition to Griefline, contributing to community wellbeing by providing access to support beyond the phone helpline, creating psycho-education on all forms of Grief and Loss and availed our most recent innovation – the launch of online moderated forums in November 2020. Without support from Rotary District 9800, who honour social purpose and investment, Griefline would not be a sustainable organisation in the current climate of NFP’s. We are very grateful for Rotary District 9800’s generosity.
