Volunteering

Help Lifeline save lives
Volunteering can be a valuable and enriching way to spend your spare time.
It can be a great way to develop your skills or return to the workforce. You can meet new people and contribute to the community. More than 90% of people who work for Lifeline South Coast are volunteers. But because people’s circumstances change, we are always seeking new volunteers to join our team.

Volunteer Crisis Supporter

Lifeline provides a National Telephone Crisis Support Service on 13 11 14. The service aims to support people in their time of emotional distress or crisis. The Crisis Supporters operating this service are volunteers and work from offices in Wollongong.

Retail Volunteer

The Lifeline Shops are the financial cornerstone of Lifeline South Coast. They provide the largest portion of funding and allow the continuation of Lifeline’s vital 24-hour telephone crisis support service in the Illawarra and South Coast. There are Lifeline Shops in Wollongong and Corrimal.

Book Sorting Volunteer

The Lifeline South Coast book sorting team manage to sort, clean, research, price, and pack around 200,000 books per year! These books are sold at our three Big Book Fair fundraising events as well as the Wollongong and Corrimal Lifeline Shops.
