Unfortunately due to funding for this program being discontinued, we are no longer able to accept new clients.

The program will continue to operate until the end of September 2022 to allow the AfterCare team time to see existing clients through their care plan and link them with other service providers as required for ongoing support.

Lifeline do offer a free counselling service, face to face, via video or phone. To book an appointment call 1300 152 854.
