"I know a lot of people who struggle with mental health so it’s something that is near and dear to my heart. I did a fundraiser and chose to shave my head. People from all over donated and we raised just over $3000."
Madi S, Fundraiser
Somewhere in Australia, there is a new call to Lifeline every 30 seconds.
Last year we received over 1 million calls to our Crisis Line.
1 in 5 calls went unanswered.
Every contact can offer hope and it is devastating that we don’t have the resources to answer every call immediately. We rely on our donors and partners to keep the lines running.
How you can make a difference
There are a number of ways you can help Lifeline Adelaide provide life-saving support.
Give a regular gift
By giving a regular gift, you can make an ongoing impact that will help us save lives every day of the year.
We’ve made it easy and effective to become a Lifeline Adelaide Supporter, and you can choose the amount and frequency of your gift.
Start your own fundraiser
Every dollar you raise can save lives by helping support Lifeline Adelaide answer calls from people in crisis.
You can set up your own fundraising page and get your friends, family and work colleagues involved. Or we can provide you with a unique fundraising event page that you can share via email and social media, and easily see who is supporting your activity and how much money is being raised.

Give a gift in memory
You may like to honour the life of a loved one who has passed away by giving their family and friends the chance to make a gift in their memory. This collective support and celebration of your loved one’s life will have a positive impact on the work of Lifeline Adelaide.
There are a number of ways you can give a gift in memory of a loved one:
Leave a gift in your Will
When you choose to leave a gift to Lifeline Adelaide in your Will, your generous legacy will make a difference to the community for many years to come. After you have taken care of your family members, friends and loved ones, we can support your wish to make a lasting impact for those in crisis into the future.
By leaving just 1% in your Will to Lifeline, you can help wind back the alarming growth in Australia’s suicide rate. If that means saving just one more life, then that's an incredibly powerful commitment.
Volunteer to be a Crisis Supporter
As Australia's largest suicide prevention service, Lifeline relies on volunteers to support people in crisis, no matter where they are, 24 hours a day. If you enjoy giving back to your community and connecting with others, then you can help us save lives.
We are always looking to recruit, onboard, and train new volunteers. Learn what it takes to become a volunteer Crisis Supporter and keep people safe.
Our vision is an Australia free of suicide, but at the moment eight Australians take their own lives every day. Connection is fundamental to all we do at Lifeline Adelaide; we're here to make a connection with any person in distress whenever they need us.
Lifeline volunteers are currently answering a call every 30 seconds. We know that through connecting with each person who calls, we can offer hope to continue.
Your gift to Lifeline Adelaide will ensure that no-one in Australia has to face their darkest moments alone.
