We all grieve. But we don’t have to do it alone.
Free, ongoing support with a trained volunteer is available.
You’re Not Alone – Grief Connection (YNA) matches you with a trained volunteer who has had a similar grief experience.
Once matched, you and your volunteer will meet regularly by telephone for up to a year, if needed. The match is confidential; this is a safe space to speak openly about the things you feel uncomfortable sharing with your friends or family.
Grief is a normal response to any type of loss. You may even feel grief before a loss has happened, like after receiving a life-limiting diagnosis for yourself or a loved one.
Interested in getting some friendly support from somebody who has been there? Complete the form and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch soon for a chat about how AHPCA can help.

YNA is not professional counselling. YNA is not a crisis service and does not have a 24/7 response.
