Our Telephone Crisis Support Volunteers are essential in making a difference to the lives of Victorian’s who use the Lifeline services.

Lifeline receives a call every 30 seconds. Despite our best efforts, 9 Australians die every day by suicide. We believe this is preventable. Becoming a volunteer will save lives and you’ll enrich your own life too.
