Make a donation

Help us answer more calls and provide suicide prevention and crisis support services to all Australians by making a donation today.



By volunteering for Lifeline not only will you be making a difference to the lives of other Australians who use the Lifeline services, but you’ll also be enriching your own life.

It takes a lot of dedicated people to provide Lifeline's telephone crisis support services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, across Australia. Lifeline Canberra relies on support from the community to answer the crisis support line, raise funds and run the iconic Bookfair events.


Online Bookstore

Lifeline Canberra earns a major part of its funding by selling thousands of donated items at our three Bookfairs. We offer a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books for all ages, as well as magazines and pamphlets, comic books and atlases, records, CDs and DVDs, games and puzzles.

A limited selection of our rarer, more valuable or collectable items is available for purchase from our online bookstore catalogue.

Lifeline Canberra Bookfairs

Lifeline Canberra's Bookfairs are the largest gathering of book-lovers in Canberra and they raise a major portion of the funding needed to keep our local 13 11 14 crisis support and suicide prevention service available to the community.

Our main Bookfairs at EPIC offer over 250,000 donated items for sale. We have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books, including rare books and collectables, children's books, textbooks and foreign language books. You'll also find magazines and pamphlets, sheet music, comics, maps and atlases, talking books, records and CDs, DVDs, games and jigsaws.

Entry to the Lifeline Canberra Bookfairs is by gold coin donation. You can pay for your purchases with cash, cheque, credit card (Mastercard or Visa) or EFTPOS.

Communities@Work Food Drive

We're proud to partner with Communities@Work to help support people experiencing hardship in our community. 

At each Bookfair, we run a food drive and ask patrons to bring along some non-perishable food to donate (click here for some ideas).

You'll see the donation bins at the entrance to the Bookfair. If everyone brings at least one item, we can make a huge difference!
