Why volunteering at Lifeline is so important.

Lifeline North Coast’s vision is for an Australia free of suicide, and on a local level when you volunteer with us you become part of the solution. Eight Australians die every day by suicide. That’s more than double the road toll, and for each life lost to suicide, the impacts are felt by up to 135 people, including family members, work colleagues, friends, first responders at the time of death. 

We need the support of like-minded people and organisations who will join us at the front line of suicide prevention.

With the assistance of our Volunteer Coordinator, you will be matched in a position that fits your skills, your strengths, and most of all one that meets your expectations.
