Local support, supporting locals

Lifeline Northern Beaches


We’re your local Lifeline and we’re here for you.


Since 1968, Lifeline Northern Beaches has been serving our community from North Sydney to Mosman and across the Northern Beaches to prevent suicide and support people in crisis.


Based in Balgowlah, we’re one of 42 Lifeline Centres around Australia who provide 24/7 voice and digital crisis support services as part of the national Lifeline network. Thanks to the work of our more than 200 Crisis Supporters, Lifeline Northern Beaches answers more than 55,000 calls to 13 11 14 every year.


Lifeline Northern Beaches also provides local services that are free or very low-cost so that anyone can access support when they need it.

Lifeline Northern Beaches is less than 30% government funded – and we rely on our community’s generosity to offer our services. You can support Lifeline Northern Beaches by giving today (use our donation form), by volunteering with us, or by shopping with us in a Lifeline Shop or Book Fair.


Can you make a donation today and help Lifeline Northern Beaches save lives in our own backyard?
