What we do
Dolly’s Dream is committed to changing the culture of bullying by increasing understanding of the impact of bullying, anxiety, depression and youth suicide and by providing support to parents.
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 mental health professional isn’t cheap, and it’s not always accessible, which is why Dolly’s Dream has partnered with the This Is a Conversation Starter Foundation (TIACS) to offer free mental health support.
No referral is needed, and the line is open to anyone who needs support. Call or text 0488 881 033 to connect with a trained mental health professional.
The line operates five days a week – 9am-5pm daily. If the team are on other calls, please leave a message and your call will be returned.
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.
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.
