What we do
Dolly’s Dream is committed to changing the culture of bullying by addressing the impact of bullying, anxiety, depression and youth suicide through education and direct support to young people and families.
Through our work at Dolly’s Dream we currently:
- support schools with our eSmart framework, workshops and kindness activities
- speak directly to parents through our newsletters, advice columns and Parent Hub portal
- provide online products to families, helping with those really important conversations
- assist young people via our workshops, digital products and through our advocacy efforts
- commit to supporting the wider community, particularly those in rural and regional areas, by providing a free counselling service.
Dolly's Dream Support Line
Support from a trained counsellor isn’t cheap, and it’s not always accessible, which is why Dolly’s Dream offers a free support line for people who need it most.
No referral is needed, and the line is open to anyone who needs support.
Call or text 0488 881 033
The line is available 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, to get started.
Dolly’s Dream workshops
Our range of online safety and anti-bullying workshops can be tailored to students of all ages, as well as parents, teachers and even the general community.
We know that everyone’s level of knowledge of the online world is different, and that’s why we adapt our workshops to suit each individual audience and their needs.
Designed by leading experts and delivered by one of our teacher-trained facilitators, our workshops are built to be interactive and engaging, without fear of judgement.
Family Tech Plan
Do you have battles with your family over technology use? Do you find it hard to find time as a family to reconnect? Maybe you or someone in your family is losing sleep in favour of screen time? Or perhaps you just want to have more opportunities to talk with your family?
Our Dolly’s Dream Family Tech Plan, supported by Lark Industries, will help with all this and more. It’s not just about technology, it’s about connection – and making time for each other as a family. The end goal is to open up lines of communication with your kids – because we know that communication is key.
DigiPledge is an online safety tool that families can do together. Comprising eight online modules, it helps stimulate important discussions about online safety between teens and their parents.
If you’re worried about what your kids are encountering online, DigiPledge can help you work with your teen so you can find comfort in the fact that they know how to make the right choices when they are online.
It’s all about making the most out of the internet, safely.
