Keeping Queenslanders safe

Lifeline is committed to bringing hope to Australians doing it tough. A trusted national charity, we’re driven by the belief that Australian lives lost to suicide can be prevented.

 

In Queensland we deliver our 24-hour 13 11 14 Lifeline Crisis Support line through 10 Lifeline centres — providing suicide prevention services with a non-judgemental and compassionate listening ear.

 

Backed by more than 6000 volunteers, our network of 130 Lifeline retail shops sell new, donated and pre-loved goods to help fund our crisis support services. We also export to overseas communities, sell rags to industry and run our Lifeline Bookfest and other events to further support our services and help save lives.


In fact, from the moment an item is donated to Lifeline to the moment a potentially lifesaving call is made, at least 38 pairs of hands have been involved, each and every pair symbolically supporting the caller.
