Reconciliation

Help Lifeline save lives

Acknowledgement of Country

Lifeline South Coast acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Countries throughout the region we serve, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their cultures, and Elders both past and present.  

Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) Working Group

We are seeking to improve our service delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, create a solid foundation for continuing our work with local communities, and develop culturally responsive and effective programs. To achieve this we recognise the need to strengthen the cultural competence of our organisation, and to develop meaningful and productive relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and organisations.

As the starting point of our reconciliation efforts, our RAP Working Group is helping us build and encourage relationships with local First Nations communities, and improve our service delivery. 

 
We are one of the first in Australia to be providing the 13 YARN service, a 24/7 crisis support line for mob who are feeling overwhelmed or having difficulty coping.
 
For any information regarding our RAP Working Group, please email admin@llsc.org.au.

Lifeline South Coast would like to acknowledge the lives that have been lost to suicide. We are committed to supporting those with a lived experience of suicide and aim to reduce the stigma around seeking help for poor mental health and suicidal crisis.
