Social return on investment

2019 GriefLine’s Social Return on Investment (SROI ) Is valued at $8,309,329.12

What is SROI? In its simplest definition, SROI is the extra financial value an organisation receives that is not reflected in conventional financial accounts. It can include goods or services in kind, sponsorship and volunteers.

Like most NFP’s the lifeblood of GriefLine is its volunteers with an enormous amount of hours contributed annually to support the services and programs of the organisation.

GriefLine relies on funding and pro bono support to provide services to the community and would like to say thank you by listing all the people, businesses and organisations that have donated and supported GriefLine to date.

This page is dedicated to our past & present supporters.

GriefLine and PHN working together to support those in crisis.

SEMPHN has partnered with GriefLine to provide services to Victoria Police. 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
 

Nellie

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. 

 

My Health Record

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.  

For more information please go to https://www.semphn.org.au/.

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 to start developing help seekers a resource hub where they will be able to access a range of resources 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 future opportunities such as the launch of the Online Forums to be rolled out 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.
