NALAG Grief Support Telephone Service - Sydney

Supporting the community through loss and grief


A little bit of our history

The NALAG Grief Support Telephone Service is a grief support line based in Sydney operating over 10 years. The original concept was for callers to ring in on and be connected to a NALAG volunteer without an appointment or designated time.

In 2014 the service opted for grief support sessions on a regular basis for clients. This has been very successful and is now well utilised by callers.

What do we do

The NALAG Grief Telephone Support Service provides grief support on a referral system by appointment through leaving a message on an answering system. A Grief Support Telephone Volunteer will ring back to make regular times for you to be contacted for grief support.
