In addition to providing a vital telephone support link, Lifeline Gippsland has other branches to its business, all with the aim of educating and supporting the community and strengthening the Organistation’s ability to provide vital services.
There are seven Lifeline Gippsland opportunity shops, known as ‘op shops’, open across the region that stock quality affordable second-hand goods. We rely on community donations to keep these retail outlets open. People can donate furniture, clothes and more to support these stores. Whilst we rely on people to volunteer in our stores, we also have other volunteer opportunities within our organisation available, including the important role of a volunteer telephone crisis supporter.
Lifeline Gippsland is also an education provider in areas such as depression awareness, suicide prevention and crisis support and mental health first aid and offers a range of training courses to the community and businesses.
Lifeline Gippsland has its own events facility suitable for conferences, meetings or training seminars and a number of modern, well-equipped offices available for hire.
