Lifeline - Keeping Queenslanders safe.

Lifeline is committed to bringing hope to Australians doing it tough. A trusted national charity, we’re driven by the belief that Australian lives lost to suicide can be prevented. In Queensland, we deliver our 24-hour 13 11 14 Lifeline Crisis Support line through 10 Lifeline centres – providing suicide prevention services with a non-judgemental and compassionate listening ear. Backed by more than 6000 volunteers, our network of 130 Lifeline retail shops sell new, donated and pre-loved goods to help fund our crisis support services. We also export to overseas communities, sell rags to industry and run our Lifeline Bookfest and other events to further support our services and help save lives.  


This volunteer opportunity will help to assist in running all aspects of a retail shop to directly fund our 24-hour crisis support line. Your few hours volunteering can and will save lives! 


We currently have space in our team for individuals with the skills to independently operate the Point-of-Sale system while engaging with customers in a warm, proactive manner during the transaction.  We are also actively seeking individuals who can estimate and price donated items at fair value to ensure great value for customers and maximise support to the 24-hour crisis support line.
