Calls for GriefLine Funding to Support Regional and Rural Locations


There are urgent calls to increase funding for GriefLine so that it can provide its vital service to more people living in regional and rural Australia.

The service has experienced an 1,100% increase in demand during the COVID-19 pandemic, off the back of around 2,000 calls following last summer's bushfires.

Board Co-Chair of GriefLine, Sarah Godfrey, says they bridge a critical gap between crisis support and those experiencing grief, loss and other traumatic events.
