The duration of the call is around 20 minutes. If you are looking for further grief support, you can call again at another time or book a support call.

Translation, hearing and speech services

Griefline has access to a free automated telephone interpreting service.

You can book a grief support call with an interpreter here.

You will then receive a call from a Griefline support volunteer in conference with the interpreter. The booked grief support call is scheduled for 20 minutes. The interpreter will stay on the phone with you for the duration of the call.

Hearing and speech services

If you are deaf and/or find it hard hearing or speaking with people who use a telephone, the National Relay Service (NRS) can help you.

The NRS is a telephone and internet solution for people who have a hearing and/or sight impairment.

It's an Australian Government initiative, and you must be registered to use the service. For more information visit NRS Information.

You can utilise the services provided by the NRS to access the Griefline’s free telephone support services.
