LLG’s 50th Birthday!

January 24, 2018

This year Lifeline Gippsland will celebrate 50 years of service to the Gippsland region. Planning is underway for the ‘golden topaz’ celebrations, but in the meantime, a little history…

Formerly Lifeline Latrobe Valley, Lifeline Gippsland was the first Lifeline Centre established in Victoria in 1968. It began on a church property, moved to a rental house then on to an old cottage on the fringe of Morwell’s retail district. In 1990 the old cottage was demolished while Lifeline rented another premises on a short-term basis in order to build the new premises which houses the current Lifeline Gippsland Centre.
