Leave a gift in your Will
A gift in your Will has the potential to save lives and help prevent suicides in future generations. It’s your chance to leave a lasting legacy to ensure no Australians have to face their darkest moments alone.
By leaving a gift in your Will to Lifeline, you can help wind back the alarming growth in Australia’s suicide rate. If that means saving just one more life, then that's an incredibly powerful commitment. There are three simple steps involved to leaving a gift, or you can simply get in touch with us for assistance.
Our vision is an Australia free of suicide, but at the moment nine Australians take their own lives every day.
Connection is fundamental to all we do at Lifeline; we're here to make a connection with any person in distress whenever they need us, 24 hours a day.
We're currently answering a call every 30 seconds. We know that through connecting with each person who calls, we can offer hope to continue.
Your lasting gift to Lifeline will ensure that no-one in Australia has to face their darkest moments alone.
By leaving a gift in your Will, you can make a positive difference while protecting what is yours and taking care of your loved ones first. We recommend that you seek the advice of an expert such as a solicitor or a specialist in a trustee company to ensure your Will is worded correctly to reflect your wishes.

I have a lifetime of poor mental health and I live with a psychiatric mood disorder. I have been hospitalised when I attempted to take my own life, and, I have also lost people who have died by suicide.
I am now a mental health peer worker and I convene and chair a community-based lived experience suicide awareness and prevention group locally.
I am not in a financial position to donate to charity now, so when I saw I could leave a gift in my Will to Lifeline which would allow me to contribute to their future funding, I was really pleased and could not pass that opportunity up.
