Lifeline WA relies heavily upon community contribution, corporate partnerships and fundraising activities to deliver its core suicide prevention and crisis support services.
44% of our funding comes from fundraising activities, 32% from Government grants, 22% from contracted services and 2% from fee for service.
Lifeline WA is working towards being financially sustainable and to diversify revenue streams by creating long term, self-generated income to support our services.
The Mental Health Commission is the major funding body for the 13 11 14 crisis support service, and has been for four years to date. This financial investment will further enhance the accessibility of Lifeline’s suicide prevention services.
Long term financial sustainability is imperative for Lifeline WA and the 13 11 14 crisis support service requires ongoing funding to enable the training of more crisis support volunteers to build capacity and save more lives. Lifeline WA continues to increase its efforts on fundraising and diversifying its revenue.
Lifeline WA receives funding for the Department for Communities for its Separated Mums and Separated Dads counselling services.
Lifeline WA also receives federal funding for its Financial Counselling service.
The DV-Alert program has been funded by the Federal Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs through Lifeline Australia since 2013.
