Volunteer to be a Crisis Supporter

Volunteering as a Crisis Supporter can be challenging but extremely rewarding. Working on the front line of suicide prevention, you could make a significant difference to people experiencing personal crisis.

What’s involved?

All Telephone Crisis Supporters are required to attend an information session and commit to ongoing training.

The majority of course modules are held on a Saturday morning from 9am – 1pm, some full day session and weeknight sessions.

Our Volunteer Information Sessions are held prior to each volunteer intake, and provide valuable information about becoming a volunteer.

Training & Information Session dates

Applications are currently closed for our Crisis Support Volunteer positions and will reopen later in the year.

For information: Call (02) 60 211 077 or email trainingaw@lifeline.org.au
