Somewhere in Australia, there is a new call to Lifeline every 30 seconds.
Currently our skilled and dedicated crisis supporters are responding to over 3,000 calls a day from someone in crisis.
We Need Your Help. Will You Be the Answer?
Ways to Be The Answer in 2024:
Paddle Across the Bay
Saturday February 24, 2024
Paddle Across the Bay is Australia's largest fundraising stand-up paddle event. Take on the 10km paddle from Brighton Beach to Port Melbourne Beach on Saturday February 24 and paddle with purpose.
Every dollar raised will support Lifeline to continue providing 24/7 crisis support services to prevent suicides and save lives.
Kokoda for Lifeline 2024
August 10 - August 19 2024
Be part of our team walking the full 150km Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea to raise funds for Lifeline Australia this August.
By setting yourself a challenge and taking on one of the most legendary walking tracks in the world, you can step to save lives, honour lives lost to suicide and stand with Aussies currently in crisis. Places are strictly limited.
How will you Be The Answer?
Run, cycle, swim or walk to help keep the phones running.
Be it a morning tea or a BBQ, a movie night or disco - gather all of your favourite people together to have a lots of fun to support a serious cause.
Join us on World Suicide Prevention Day for our Out of The Shadows Walk.
What will you go without to help others? Coffee or beer, social media or smoking – what will you give up to stop calls going unanswered?
When it comes to celebrating your big day (birthday, wedding, anniversary) ask your loved ones to make a donation to save others instead of buying a gift.
You don’t have to follow our suggestions if you have your own fantastic idea for a fundraiser – go for it!
Gather your friends and unleash individual superpowers for a shared cause. You'll go further with more of you.
How others did it
Jim A Barker
Jim Barker ,a Sydney photographer saw his work dry up overnight due to COVID-19. A tale of resilience and community he put devoted his time to creating and capturing a heartfelt project to connect with the community and save lives.
Doortraits is a colourful time capsule of pictures capturing the hearts of a community in lockdown, made whilst observing social distancing measures. The first COVID-19 exhibit of its kind will go live online at Twelvepoints.Photography/Doortraits to raise funds for Lifeline. Drawing parallels with ‘Humans of New York’ the project is the brainchild of photographer Jim A. Barker. Forty Doortraits have been collected across Sydney as part of the online exhibition, each offering intimate insights into the joys and struggles faced during the pandemic
Doortraits is raising vital funds for Lifeline which is experiencing an unprecedented number of calls during COVID
