Lifeline Ballarat is grateful for the support of our volunteers, and for the generosity of our sponsors and donors. We need ongoing support to continue our lifesaving work. Without this support Lifeline Ballarat could not continue to provide its service to our local community and Australia.

Lifeline Ballarat currently receives funding of approximately one-third of its annual operating costs from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. The remainder of our funding comes from gifts, fundraising, trusts, grants, and from Uniting Ballarat.

Every dollar we raise supports our crisis support and suicide prevention services and importantly, the 13 11 14 Crisis Support Line. Every $39 we raise allows us to answer another call and potentially, save another live. With the high rate of suicide in Australia each year, our work is more important than ever. Donate to Lifeline Ballarat and know that you are making a difference in our community.
