Lifeline Adelaide morning tea - Charity Committee
DMAW Lawyers was privileged to hear from one of Lifeline Adelaide’s volunteers, Isaiah, who came and presented to our staff at a recent morning tea. Lifeline Adelaide is committed to preventing suicide, supporting people in crisis, and promoting good mental health and emotional wellbeing, and operates a crisis support hotline for people who need it.
Isaiah shared important statistics with us about how many Australians reach out to Lifeline each year, the costs involved in answering each call and training volunteers. Lifeline has seen a 44% increase in calls during the pandemic.
Our Charity Committee has been raising funds for Lifeline Adelaide the past few months, and is proud to support the work of this important organisation.
