You can help Lifeline launch a dedicated Bushfire Recovery Crisis Support line
Since December last year, Lifeline has recorded a 10% increase in calls to its 13 11 14 service, with call volume spiking at over 14% on some days.
As always, it’s important that Lifeline can be there for every person who needs us, when they need us.
From the thousands of additional calls that have come in to Lifeline, and from our teams on the ground, it’s clear that people need both crisis support and simple, clear information about what is available to them in their local community when they need it.
The loss and grief caused by the bushfires will have an impact on the mental wellbeing of many people and their communities, both now and well into the future. That is why Lifeline is working closely with the National Bushfire Recovery Agency to provide crisis support and deliver timely access to information about services that are directly related to an individual’s community.
With your help, we can connect people with the support they need – anytime, wherever they are.
Please consider making a donation tonight to help deliver crisis support and consistent, accurate information to the people who need it most.
