Lifeline Gippsland is a part of Lifeline Australia’s 24-hour Telephone Crisis Support network. Through this vital link with the community, our trained Crisis Support Workers spend time with each caller to reduce the caller’s distress and enable coping.

There are many reasons why people call Lifeline. Callers may also be living with the effects of substance abuse or domestic and family violence. A number of callers are simply lonely and need an empathic, non-judgmental person to listen to their story and ease their pain.

Our Crisis Support Workers are well-trained in Suicide Prevention and Crisis Intervention. Callers in the Gippsland region may also be referred to our Connect Call Back Service for additional on-going support.

To help fund a part of these services, we rely heavily on our rags sales; we recycle un-saleable clothing that has been donated. Other opportunities to support Lifeline Gippsland are available here

Contact Lifeline Gippsland for further information.
