We understand there are times when you want a friendly chat with another bereaved parent who will listen and share. If you would like a fellow bereaved parent to contact you, simply fill in the form below and one of our grief support parents will get back to you as soon as possible. If you need support now, phone contact can be made with The Compassionate Friends at any time. Our grief support telephone lines are always answered by fellow bereaved parents who have received training in grief and loss and listening skills. They offer a caring ear and are passionate about supporting bereaved families.
We have a dedicated support line staffed by bereaved parents, as well as a network of Telephone Friends around Queensland. The grief from the death of a child can be very isolating for parents, as can geography. A Telephone Friend in your area, who is a bereaved parent, will answer your call at their home or on their mobile. If we are unable to take your call, we encourage you to leave a message so we can get back to you.
Please feel free and welcome to call us on our dedicated support line (07) 3254 2585 or our National Support Line 1300064068 (you will be connected to someone in Queensland) or one of our Telephone Friends.
Some parents may find that they are unable to talk about their experience, but still wish for some communication. Email support can be a safe avenue for seeking support.
Our email support friend is firstname.lastname@example.org.
