Help us answer the phones
Lifeline has been providing support and helping to relieve distress for New Zealanders for over 50 years. Our free, confidential helplines and text services are answered by qualified counsellors and trained volunteers. We receive over 10,000 calls every month and every day we help 6 people who are at risk of suicide. Each call costs approximately $25 to answer and with no Government funding for these services, we rely on donations to be able to be there at times of need.
