13 11 14

Lifeline operates a national 24 hour telephone crisis support service on 13 11 14. In the 2014-2015 year, we answer more than 820,000 calls from Australians in crisis - 18,500 of those are answered by trained Volunteer Crisis Supporters in the Illawarra and South Coast regions.

The Lifeline South Coast call catchment area covers the coastal region from Helensburgh to the Victorian border. Our aim is to be there as life happens.

We were established in Wollongong in March 1969. The service is non-denominational and Volunteer Telephone Crisis Supporters come from a wide range of backgrounds.

You can call 13 11 14 and speak to a trained and caring Telephone Crisis Supporter about any issue, no matter how big or small:

  • relationships
  • loneliness
  • life decisions
  • grief
  • addiction
  • abuse
  • stress
  • depression
  • suicide

Telephone Crisis Supporters help you talk about your concerns and assist you to find ways to solve them.
