Somewhere in Australia, there is a new call to Lifeline, every minute, every day. People call about many things, but every call has one thing in common: it is a cry for help. We rely on the generosity of the community to support the people who rely on us.

Lifeline Geelong operates as part of the national 13 11 14 crisis service. Each year we train caring and empathic individuals in the skills of telephone crisis support to supplement our team of volunteers. These individuals not only provide support to callers to 13 11 14 but also enrich their local community, taking these skills to schools, workplaces, sporting clubs, service groups, churches - indeed wherever people meet. Our community is suicide-safer because of these volunteers.

How will the funds be used?

The money raised will go primarily to cover the growing costs for Lifeline's 24 hour telephone counselling service, 13 11 14. Any additional funds raised will support Lifeline's range of other programs such as professional training, provision and promotion of volunteer training and support, and to help build our capacity to connect our community with someone who cares.

What can you do?

There are three ways that you can help us make a difference in our community:

  • Volunteer as a Lifeline telephone crisis supporter
  • Participate in training such as SafeTALK or ASIST, Mental Health First Aid, or DV Alert
  • Make a donation to Lifeline Geelong
