Volunteer Opportunities, Lifeline Gippsland


There are many ways of getting involved in volunteering with Lifeline Gippsland. Volunteering is a great way to give something back to the community you live in, and by joining Lifeline Gippsland you can get real rewards by helping people in need. Ask the volunteers already in our team and they will tell you about the great sense of satisfaction and pride they get from helping people through the contribution they make to the organisation!

As well as the volunteer roles we have for telephone crisis supporters, we also have other volunteer opportunities within the retail side of our business. Check out the ways you can get involved below.

Volunteer for Warehouse

Lifeline Gippsland’s warehouse is at the very heart of our business operations. Warehouse volunteers sort through the hundreds of donations every day, including clothes, furniture books and more.
