Volunteer

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.

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!
