Lifeline has been operating in Tasmania since 1973, commencing as two chapters (Lifeline North West and Lifeline Hobart), which merged in 2012 to form Lifeline Tasmania - a single organisation with state-wide reach.
After more than four decades of service to the Tasmanian community, we remain steadfastly committed to our fulfilling our mission: to lead, develop and deliver programs and services that save lives and build emotional wellbeing and resilience. And together, our team of dedicated staff and more than 400 volunteers share a common goal: A Tasmania free of suicide, where everyone meets challenges with strength and optimism
Lifeline Tasmania has been helping Tasmanians for more than 40 years, through the provision of programs and services aimed at building strong, resilient communities.
