THE staff members at Lifeline Macarthur are dedicated to providing support to the local community.

Marketing and events manager Lisa Colquhoun said Lifeline Macarthur was proud to operate in and serve a community that was diverse and supportive.

"We rely on our partnerships with local community groups and businesses, and on the generosity of hundreds of volunteers from within the community to help us save lives," she said.

"Lifeline Macarthur is dedicated to providing compassionate and competent support to those in the community facing crisis, and saving the lives of community members at risk of suicide. "We also provide volunteering opportunities for community members who are interested in learning new skills whilst giving back to the community."

The self-funded not-for-profit organisation provides a range of crisis support and suicide-prevention services to a population of more than 1.1 million people across south-west Sydney, Macarthur and the southern highlands.

"Lifeline Macarthur's services aim to support to people in crisis and save lives through suicide prevention," Ms Colquhoun said.

"Our services include the 13 11 14 telephone Crisis Support Line; suicide awareness and prevention support; crisis support training; a suicide bereavement support group; financial counselling, UWS psychology clinic, corporate and community eduction, and a range of accessible toolkits and resources."

Lifeline also offers a number of training courses throughout the year.
