Lifeline Australia appreciates that not all people have the same ability to access information - in particular, some people with disabilities find using websites difficult. To assist these users, and to provide a website that works effectively for all users, we have implemented the following measures.
All pages on this website validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional and use semantically valid markup. More information on this standard is available from the W3C Organisation. We also comply with standards for Cascading Stylesheets 2 (CSS2). For information on why standards compliance is important, the Web Standards Project provides some useful information. Structured and meaningful Hypertext Mark-up Language (HTML) has been used to help users access the site via non-visual means, such as users of screen-reading software
Skip to content link
We have placed a 'skip to content' link at the beginning of every page. This allows users with text-only browsers, or users reliant on keyboard commands to quickly move their cursor to the content area of the screen.
A detailed sitemap is available to provide fast access to content in this website that may be located deep within a hierarchy of pages.
Lifeline is committed to supporting Australians in their time of emotional need during a personal or community crisis. We seek to equip individuals with the courage to ask for help when they need it, to be more self aware and resilient, and to build communities that are more socially inclusive.
