Community Development Grant of $500,000 to Lifeline Broken Hill

It was great to receive the media release announcing a $500,000 Community Development Grant is to be given to Lifeline Broken Hill.

The Hon Sussan Ley MP, Federal Member for Farrer (the Federal seat in which Broken Hill resides) is visiting Broken Hill and will present the cheque for $500,000 to Scott Hammond, the CEO of Lifeline Broken Hill today, Wednesday 9 July 2014 at 10am.

Where - Lifeline Broken Hill, 194 Argent Street.

The major funding grant will help Lifeline develop its local Community Neighbourhood Centre and Workshop. Over 2,000 people access Lifeline Broken Hill's face to face service annually, and is part of over 26,000 information and referral contacts which are made each year.

The Lifeline Broken Hill team also provides training to over 300 frontline workers and an additional 200+ community members.

It is such a fantastic worthy cause, and I'm glad the Federal Government is supporting Lifeline's wonderful and extremely important work.

My family have been touched by suicide, so I fully appreciate just how crucial every dollar that goes to support Lifeline is.

If you need crisis support please call Lifeline 13 11 14.

Lifeline provides 'crisis support and suicide prevention services'.

If life is in danger call 000.
