“We work with a wide range of community and charitable organisations to help them deliver their positive messages to Tasmanians and in the majority of these cases the generosity of volunteers is at the core of their success.

Lifeline Tasmania

Lifeline is a national charity providing all Australians experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.  Lifeline was founded in 1963 by the late Reverend Dr. Sir Alan Walker, when he took a call from a distressed man who later took his own life. Determined not to let isolation and lack of support be the cause of more deaths, Sir Alan launched a 24-hour crisis support line. This service (13 11 14) now answers around 1,800 calls each day, with around 50 calls from people at high risk of suicide.

Lifeline’s services are now made possible through the efforts of around 1,000 staff and 11,000 volunteers, operating from over 60 locations nationwide.

“Lifeline Tasmania is honoured to be sponsoring the Tasmanian Emergency Services Volunteer Award. Lifeline Tasmania has 380 volunteers and recognises the significant contribution that volunteers make to our community. Volunteers working in emergency services and ‘informal volunteers’ are critical to assisting those individuals, families and communities who face crisis and the long road to recovery after a disaster.”
Debbie Evans, CEO, Lifeline

Lifeline is looking for people from all walks of life who would like to make a commitment to regular volunteer work and who are willing to learn new skills, support others and work within the vision and values of Lifeline.  By volunteering your time and skills to Lifeline you can help people in crisis, find out more on our website.

MyState

We know there’s more to life than work…there’s also volunteering!  The team at MyState is passionate about making a positive contribution to the Tasmanian community. MyState’s Hands On Volunteer Program gives our staff the chance to spend one working day per year with a non-profit organisation of their choice.

The rewards of volunteering flow both ways. While the non-profit organisations and charities benefit from the extra help, our team members have the privilege of seeing first hand the incredible work done by so many organisations in our community, and the positive impact that even a few hours of help can have.

“We live in a vibrant state, where dedicated, talented people in the Tasmanian Community achieve great things every day. MyState is privileged to support and encourage them through our many community projects and initiatives.”
Melos Sulicich Managing Director and CEO MyState Limited

There are many willing hands at MyState, so if you know a charitable organisation that could use some Hands On Volunteers, please let us know by calling 138 001.
