Crisis Support Volunteering

By volunteering your time and skills you can help people in crisis and save lives.

It takes a lot of dedicated people to provide our 13 11 14 crisis support service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Volunteers have enabled Lifeline to provide essential crisis support services to the Western Australian community for 30 years. 

Lifeline WA is now accepting applications for our upcoming Crisis Supporter Training Courses in September (full-time course) and October (2x part-time courses). A Lifeline Training Course is the first step on the Crisis Supporter Worker Training Pathway. Over the course of 12 months, you will be supported through your initial training, your student placement and internship to become a fully accredited Lifeline Crisis Supporter.

Applications for our full-time training course close on Sunday 21st August 2022, while applications for our part-time training courses close on Thursday 25th August 2022.
