Our 4-Step Quality Process
When goods are donated to Lifeline Tasmania, a dedicated team of drivers, warehouse staff and retail workers swing into action. Their goal is to sort and grade the thousands of items of clothing, accessories, toys and bric-a-brac that go through our warehouses each year, as quickly and efficiently as possible so that customers can benefit.
The proceeds of all sales through Lifeline Shops in Tasmania go to supporting our core business: saving lives and building strength and resilience in the Tasmanian community.

Step 1: Our drivers collect donations from the Lifeline bins daily and deliver them to the nearest warehouse for unpacking.
Step 2: The bags are opened and sorted by hand. Clothes that cannot be sold are sent away to be turned into rags or disposed of responsibly.
Step 3: The good products are hung, categorised and priced.
Step 4: Our shops are stocked several times a day so that customers can snag a bargain!
