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.

2017 Women of Spirit Awards

2017 Women of Spirit Awards

Each year, Lifeline Canberra recognises inspirational women in our community; women who have triumphed over adversity, who give back to the community and inspire others to do the same.

The Women of Spirit Awards is one small way to thank these incredible women and remind them how special they are. An elegant Awards luncheon will be held in September to celebrate these remarkable women.

The Awards have grown substantially over the past few years and are now bigger than ever before, with over 200 people in attendance at the 2016 Awards luncheon (click here to read more about the 2016 Awards). With the growth of the Awards, we are now able to reach more and more remarkable women!
