Retail Volunteer

If you think you’d like to take up some volunteer work at a Lifeline South Coast Shop, we gratefully welcome new volunteers every day.

Your few hours volunteering can and will save lives!

Volunteer in a Lifeline Shop

We couldn’t run our Lifeline Shops without the help of our incredible volunteers. Our volunteers come from every walk of life — it takes all ages and ability to ensure our shops look great and run smoothly.

Our Lifeline Shops directly support us to operate our 24-hour 13 11 14 Lifeline Crisis Line, which answers over 30,000 calls every year across the Illawarra and South Coast.

Becoming a volunteer is a chance for you to brush up on your retail skills, learn something new, and help strengthen your local community. And remember, just a couple of hours a week for you could be life-changing to people in crisis.

Make an application by selecting where you’d like to volunteer below.
