Dorothy is widow and bereaved mother of six with no living children. Based in Adelaide, Dorothy is a volunteer support worker and counsellor for Bears of Hope with a diploma of counselling. Dorothy sees her role as companioning other bereaved parents and their families and sees it is an honour and privilege to do so. Dorothy can be contacted to chat on the phone support line 1300 11 HOPE every Tuesday from 9am until about the same time on Wednesday mornings. She is also available to talk to people outside of those times (and for those in Adelaide can catch for a cuppa) and can be contacted via the Hopebearsof Facebook profile where she is moderator to our Parent Support Page.
