Lifeline Tasmania's Impact 2018/19

At our 2018/19 Annual General Meeting we celebrated the achievements of our team throughout Tasmania. We acknowledged the significant 1,000,000 plus hours freely given by our 400 plus volunteers, including our longest serving volunteer who contributed 43 committed years of service. 

We recognised the skills and knowledge shared to the 450 front line workers who are now able to recognise, respond and refer in domestic and family violence situations.

It was important to recognise that 180 isolated Tasmanians found friends are now connected through our social support programs to improve the lives of older people who are isolated and lonely.

In helping us work towards our vision of a Tasmania free of suicide, we trained 70 community members who can now apply Suicide Intervention Skills. 

Through our StandBy Support After Suicide Program, we supported 38% of people in regional and remote areas of our State. 

In Tasmania, our Crisis Supporter Volunteers supported close to 9,000 people in crisis as part of the 13 11 14 support line, plus we recruited 25 new volunteers into this essential community service. This year on average one call is made to Lifeline every 30 seconds. 

This is a short snippet of the significant contribution made by our staff and volunteers in Tasmania. You can access a copy of our 2018/19 Impact Report here

Thanks to the ongoing generous support of the local community and our funding partners that enable us to work tirelessly 365 days a year to equip individuals and communities to be suicide safe.
