Lifeline corporate partners & supporters
Lifeline greatly values the relationship it has with our current corporate partners and supporters, and would like to acknowledge the generous support of the following organisations.
The IAG Foundation provides opportunities for our people to make a positive contribution to the community. The Foundation aims to help make a difference to the communities in which we live through meaningful and collaborative partnerships with charities, community groups and non-for-profit organisations. It aims to raise awareness of important social issues and provide a voice for our people to share their passions in the community as well as contribute to positive outcomes. We will help create opportunities for more people to be involved with community groups in different ways.
P&O Cruises has been sailing from Australia for 78 years, but in the past five years P&O Cruises has expanded its operations from one cruise ship, based in Sydney, to three cruise ships sailing year round from the ports of Sydney, Brisbane, Fremantle, Newcastle and Auckland. P&O Cruises will welcome a fourth ship to its fleet in December 2010.
P&O Cruises make regular and significant donations of used and surplus goods from their modern cruise liners. These goods are on sold through Lifeline’s retail outlets in New South Wales and Queensland, with proceeds supporting Lifeline’s Centre operations, including Lifeline’s 24 hour telephone crisis support service.
