Chances are, your business has a strong connection to the Northern Beaches.
By becoming a Lifeline Northern Beaches corporate partner, you can protect and support the people who matter to you most… your employees, clients and our community.
Since 1972, Lifeline Northern Beaches has worked to prevent suicide and support mental health in our community.
Tragically, suicide is still an issue that’s affecting us in a very real way – with over 30 suicides on the Northern Beaches in 2018 alone. That’s more than one suicide every fortnight.
No matter who you are or where you work, suicide is something that can touch your life in the most shattering way.
As an essential service, we continue to create connection with people in crisis and empower individuals and communities to be safe from suicide.
How does corporate partnership work?
We currently work with many local businesses in a range of different ways.
Every partnership is unique – it depends on how (and how much) you want to give or be involved. No matter the size of the contribution, ALL corporate partnerships are valuable to us.
Without the support of local businesses, we simply couldn’t have the reach and impact we currently do.
Here are a few examples of how you can show your support:
- Give. Sponsor a service, donate a percentage of your sales, give products or services in kind, or hold a tax time fundraising appeal.
- Engage. Encourage workplace giving, match employee donations, or give your employees the opportunity to volunteer or fundraise for us.
- Raise awareness. Use your networks and platforms to educate and raise awareness of suicide prevention and mental health in our community.
As well as benefiting Lifeline Northern Beaches, a corporate partnership benefits your business too. Here are a few ways we can engage with your people to motivate, empower and support them on a personal level:
We offer a variety of training courses focused on mental health and crisis support. By equipping your leaders and teams with this kind of specialist skills and knowledge, you can empower them to support their colleagues and loved ones – and improve their own self-awareness and wellness at the same time.
