Our National Partners

Our National Partners enable much of the growth and development of Lifeline's services. We greatly value the relationships we have formed while developing programs and services with our corporate supporters. Here, we acknowledge the generous support of our National Partners.

Principal Partners

The team at rebel are working with Lifeline Australia to communicate the benefits of sport and exercise for boosting mental health, all while raising funds for Lifeline to continue our critical work. The partnership recognises the powerful, positive impact of sport on mental health and suicide prevention.

Rebel sponsors the ‘Be Active’ fundraising portal on Lifeline Australia’s website, this allows the public to fundraise through challenger events and sport for Lifeline. However, Rebel’s major campaign runs in October, tied into World Mental Health Week. “Sport is for mind and body” illustrates the unifying concept of sport in strengthening mental health. In collaboration with their great partners, Rebel provides essential funds to Lifeline to help us continue our work.

Woolworths’ essential funding has helped Lifeline to ramp up crisis support services and work closely with communities recovering from drought and natural disasters.

Community Recovery - through the STAND Appeal, Woolworths are assisting Lifeline to provide life-saving support to vulnerable communities affected by natural disaster through the delivery of a 24/7 dedicated disaster relief helpline 13HELP, to support in affected communities. This support is critical to ensuring affected communities have every chance to build resilience and recover.

Lifeline Text – Woolworths’ support played a key role in piloting and establishing the Lifeline Text service. More young people are accessing our service in greater numbers. In fact, 53.7% of people who accessed Lifeline Text last year were under 24 years. Offering multiple channels of support – Phone, Chat, and Text – is essential in ensuring that a full safety net of crisis support is available to everyone in the community.

IAG's NRMA Insurance business and RACV joined forces to provide funding to Lifeline Australia to help enable critical tele-health suicide prevention services for vulnerable communities affected by the summer bushfires and COVID-19.

The joint NRMA Insurance and RACV funding has enabled:

  • More than 8,000 tele-health counselling sessions for people in communities affected by drought, bushfire, flood, and COVID-19.
  • e-learning Accidental Counsellor training for up to 3,000 people in communities across Australia, with a focus on those who have regular contact with other community members. This training will equip people with the skills to recognise the signs of mental distress or ill health and the ability to respond effectively and refer people to the most appropriate local services.
  • Distribution of tool-kits and resources within affected regions so that people are aware of the support that is available to them.

Scentre Group and Lifeline have a shared goal of keeping people and communities safe.

All 37 Westfield destinations across Australia are considered local community hubs where millions of people visit to connect with social and retail experiences and a range of services, every year.

As some of the most visited places in Australia, the Group’s proud partnership with Lifeline Australia facilitates greater access to support resources and services for individuals and families across the community, when and where they need it.

The Partnership is multi-faceted and includes the promotion of Lifeline services, volunteers and campaigns throughout Australian Westfield centres, throughout the year, in addition to financial, in-kind investment and fundraising support.

Scentre Group recognises the significant and highly valued role Lifeline has played in Australian communities for the past 60 years and, through the partnership, is committed to continuing to create positive and lasting impact on the communities it serves.

National Partners

Together, nib foundation and Lifeline Australia are helping to ensure there is a complete safety net of crisis and non-crisis support, whether that be through phone, chat and text services, or self-led tools and resources.

With a focus on prevention, nib foundation has committed to support Lifeline Australia to develop and launch the online self-help toolkit. The toolkit enables helpseekers to take ownership of their experience and navigate self-help resources, articles, stories and support tools that they can use every day to maintain their mental health and wellbeing.

This builds on nib’s support in 2020, which helped Lifeline Australia expand Lifeline Text, to meet the increased demand for mental health support during the COVID-19 pandemic. This included 10,000 additional crisis interventions on top of other crisis support services and the recruitment and training of 60 new volunteers.

The Buildcorp Foundation’s mission is to provide a common vehicle to maximise the collective, giving spirit of their team and business partners, to those initiatives and organisations dear to the Buildcorp community. Buildcorp Foundation has been supporting Lifeline since 2015.

According to the Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention, men aged 15 to 24 working in construction are twice as likely as other young males in the community to take their own lives. They're also six times more likely to die from suicide than from a workplace accident.

The Foundation has so far enabled the recruitment, training, and technology needed for additional telephone Crisis Supporters, helping Lifeline respond to the increasing number of requests for help received each day.
