NALAG Centre for Loss & Grief, Dubbo

The NALAG Centre for Loss & Grief Dubbo was established in 1992 following donation of a building by the Citizen's Radio Emergency Service Team (CREST). The NALAG Centre in Dubbo is the Head Office for the NALAG (NSW) Inc Association. Currently funded by the NSW Health Drug and Alcohol, the Centre has 2 fulltime and 2 part time staff together with 60 dedicated volunteers.

 

Our Grief Support Services 

 

The NALAG Centre for Loss and Grief provides free individual face to face grief support by trained volunteers for adults and children who are grieving following a loss. In certain circumstances we can also offer individual face to face grief counselling by a registered psychologist. Appointments are essential and are by prior arrangement only. The NALAG Centre is not a crisis centre and all emergencies should be directed to the appropriate agency or to the outpatient unit of your local Hospital.

 

The NALAG Centre outreaches to Wellington, Narromine, Coonabarabran, Trangie, Nyngan, Parkes, Forbes and Gilgandra where possible.

 

Cost

NALAG is a not for profit organisation. The NALAG Centre for Loss & Grief Dubbo provides grief and loss support to all people regardless of financial circumstances and provides these services completely FREE of charge. The Blue Healers Depression Program, the Bereavement Buddy Program and the Seasons for Growth Program are also offered FREE to suitable participants.
