What do our volunteers say about Lifeline Ballarat?
“When I first heard about the opportunity to volunteer as a Crisis Supporter for Lifeline Ballarat, I didn’t know what to expect, but I thought I’d give it a go.
It turned out to be a very important decision. I feel engaged and alive. I feel that not only am I helping callers in their time of need, but they in turn help me, it’s definitely a two way street.
I’ve grown through the experience and I use what I have learnt on the phone at Lifeline in my personal life. It has been an enriching experience all round.”
