Community Partnerships

Our organisation has been a beacon of hope for countless individuals navigating their darkest times. Corporate Community Partners give us support to reach more people in crisis, create new training programs and take on new programs to help more people within our community.

Now, we invite you to secure your position as a catalyst for positive change by partnering with Lifeline South Coast.

Why partner with us?

The connection we make with our partners is fundamental to all we do, lives depend on it. Corporate Australia has a powerful opportunity to partner with Lifeline Australia to tackle one of the most complex challenges of our time.

Today’s workplaces and leaders are dealing with complex issues impacting performance; from geopolitical pressures, through to managing digital transformation and preventing cyber attack. Where does mental health sit in this agenda and how can we as leaders foster more open discussion to create mentally healthy work places that support individual wellbeing and business performance?


Partnering with Lifeline provides a unique opportunity to:

  • Access the information, stories and lived experience to support your workplace wellbeing goals
  • Create connections to further your progress in bringing mental wellbeing to the fore of your business; and
  • Provide access to our suite of training and tools to help you build safe workplaces
