About us

As part of the national Lifeline network, Lifeline Northern Beaches has proudly been serving our local community for over 50 years. Here’s an overview of our story, and what makes our organisation so special.

Who we are

As you may already know, the Lifeline network leads the way in providing crisis support and suicide prevention services to Australians in need, 24/7. Our organisation is unique in the fact it has a national reach, but a local approach – with 40 centres around the country delivering services to their immediate areas, including our own.


Lifeline Northern Beaches was established almost 50 years ago to serve the area stretching from Kirribilli to Palm Beach (for more info on our area, click here). We’re an independent organisation with a local Board, a small number of salaried staff, and over 600 volunteers, who provide invaluable support. Lifeline Northern Beaches is also a Public Benevolent Institution, registered with the Australian Charities and not-for-profits commission.

What we do

At Lifeline Northern Beaches our primary purpose is to provide quality telephone and in-person support to relieve the distress caused by crisis situations. Our services include:


What drives us

We’re here to support people going through a wide range of difficulties, from anger, anxiety and depression, to family, relationship and financial problems. Our aim is to connect these at-risk people (and their families) with the right resources to help them through.


Our vision: An Australia free of suicide


Our purpose: We create connection with people in crisis and empower individuals and communities to be safe from suicide.
