This National Volunteer Week, Lifeline is shining a light on its volunteers and the critical role they play in giving thousands of people across Australia hope and connection around the clock each and every day.

Lifeline Loddon Mallee EO, Lisa Renato says the Bendigo and Sunraysia Centres continued to experience high demand for their services, highlighting the impact of local volunteers donating their time, skills, and expertise to support Lifeline.

“This week, we are taking the time to thank and recognise each one of our volunteers who is making a meaningful impact on the lives of others – from our Crisis Supporters on the phone, to our retail workers at the Thrift Store” said Lisa.
