Book Sorting Volunteer

Lifeline's Big Book Fair fundraising events are a major source of funding for the continuation of Lifeline's 24/7 telephone crisis support service in the Illawarra and South Coast.

The Lifeline South Coast book sorting team are a dedicated, friendly and knowledgable group of volunteers who manage to sort, clean, research, price, and pack around 200,000 books per year! These books are sold at our three Big Book Fair fundraising events as well as the Wollongong and Corrimal Lifeline Shops. There are a range of volunteer roles available in our Book Sorting section located in Wollongong.

All Lifeline South Coast volunteers receive training in policies and procedures.
