About Lifeline Direct
Lifeline Direct (LLD) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lifeline Australia, delivering the suite of Lifeline's services across six geographical regions in both Victoria and NSW. LLD works as a collaborative of local Lifeline Centres sharing administrative and other support services, which not only delivers efficiency in administration, but enables the Centres to work together in areas that were not previously possible. All this, while maintaining a sense of ‘localness’ to operate and serve local communities. LLD encompasses Geelong, South West Victoria, Hunter region, Central Coast, New England and Northern NSW.
Why Volunteer for Lifeline Direct?
Volunteering provides many benefits to both mental and physical health. It can bring greater meaning and purpose to the volunteer’s life while increasing self-esteem, wellbeing and developing new skills and experience.
Volunteering is a great way to build connections with like-minded people while contributing to achieve Lifeline’s vision of an Australia free from suicide.
Lifeline volunteers are crucial to our organisation. They are an invaluable component of our team locally and play an essential role in delivery of support services, retail offerings and fundraising activities.
Without our volunteers we would not be able to continue our crisis support and suicide prevention services locally.
