Volunteers are our Lifeline


You can help Lifeline sell more reusable products by volunteering at a Lifeline Shop, at one of our warehouses or at a special event like a Clothing Sale or the well known Lifeline Bookfest.

Volunteers are vital to the work of the Lifeline Shops and make up the majority of Lifeline’s Business employees. Volunteering is also a great way to meet new people, learn retail skills, put your own skills to use and have fun.

Lifeline encourages young people to consider volunteering at a Lifeline Shop or special event. We recognise that young people have unique needs and expectations and desire variety, challenge, fun and flexibility.

The Lifeline Shops in Queensland generally require a regular volunteer commitment of at least 4 hours per fortnight.

Special events such as Bookfests and Clothing Sales are held once or twice a year in many regions, offering flexible volunteering opportunities. These events always need volunteers to help set up and pack down and offer jobs such as cashier, pricer and sorter.
