A little bit about us

Lifeline Albury Wodonga (LLAW) is a not-for-profit organisation with a purpose to provide support for individuals in time of crisis, and to create a suicide safe community through building regional resilience.

Lifeline is a predominately volunteer organisation. Lifeline’s 13 11 14 Crisis Support service is provided by volunteers in our Albury Centre, and their work is financially supported in a significant way by revenue generated from our shops in Albury and Wodonga, which are also staffed largely by volunteers.

So, when people make donations and purchases in our shops, the money stays here in our community, directly supporting our local centre.
