Lifeline South Coast exists to support people in crisis and ensure that no person has to face their darkest moments alone. For over 50 years, our highly skilled volunteers have provided crucial moments of connection that bring hope and save lives.
Every dollar raised helps us to recruit, train, and support more Crisis Supporters to respond to more people and provide vital suicide prevention services to the Illawarra and South Coast.
We were established in Wollongong in March 1969 and the Nowra branch was opened in 1981. 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.
