Lifeline Western Sydney
Lifeline Western Sydney is one of 44 centres accredited by Lifeline Australia, and is a service of UnitingCare Mental Health.
We provide a 24 hour, 7 day a week crisis telephone service and answer over 50,000 crisis calls per year, from people of all ages who are in crisis due to a range of issues including:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Relationship difficulties
- Mental illness
- Domestic violence
- Addictive behaviour
- Social isolation
This service would not be possible without our friendly, caring team of dedicated volunteers. As the demand for the Lifeline telephone crisis service is always high, we are continually looking to expand the team.
We run courses throughout the year - both day and evening classes - at our training centre at Parramatta. Whilst the actual cost of the course is valued at around $3,500, through grants, donations and fundraising events, we are able to offer it at a greatly subsidised rate. In return, we ask for an ongoing commitment of fortnightly, 4 hour shifts (at a time to suit you) to Lifeline Western Sydney, for a period of at least 12 months from when you start answering calls.
