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.

Lock Up Your Boss 2017

Posted in Past Events

Huge thanks to our Lock Up Your Boss legends! Thanks to these amazing people, and their supporters, we raised a massive $74,000 from this fundraiser!! An absolutely incredible result which will help us answer over 2,800 calls to our local crisis support and suicide prevention line.

Thanks to everyone involved.

About the fundraising campaign:

From 28 April, teams from businesses across the ACT will be locking up their bosses and throwing away the keys! Their only way out? Raising enough cash for bail.

It’s not really as bad as it sounds, though. Because this year, Lock Up Your Boss is taking place exclusively online in a ‘virtual’ prison. And it’s still for a great cause: raising money for Lifeline Canberra's 13 11 14 crisis support and suicide prevention line.
