What would you do if you couldn't keep warm?

What would you do if you couldn't keep your family warm? How would you stay safe if you didn't have a home to shelter in? Where would you turn if you couldn't put food on the table? When faced with unexpected circumstances and uncertain times, many people across the south west turn to Lifeline Darling Downs and South West Qld Ltd. Working together we can provide counselling, food assistance, housing and crisis support to the most vulnerable individuals in our community. Vulnerable people are at their lowest point over winter and unfortunately suicide is a tragic outcome for some.

Lifeline’s crisis support is critical during this harsh time of year.  It's about bringing hope, dignity, and the warmth of community to an otherwise, chilly winter.

The need has never been greater.

Hundreds of Toowoomba and south west Queensland households are feeling the strain as energy, transportation, and housing prices climb. During the harsh winter months, some families may be unable to have a roof over their heads, and many more will be unable to remain warm. Unfortunately, families are sometimes forced to choose between eating and keeping their houses warm.

Families and individuals facing financial difficulties and circumstances beyond their control are more likely to develop health issues and become homeless if they do not obtain support. But together we can make a difference.

We need your help.

Lifeline Darling Downs, is asking the public and businesses to partner with us and dig deep to help raise at least $25,000 to support residents of south west Queensland needing assistance during the winter months.

Your donation will make a world of difference to a person or a family in need. It will provide LDDSWQL with funds for emergency housing, clothing and blankets, food packages, free counselling and other forms of support.

Donate now or create your own fundraiser to involve your friends, family and colleagues. Every donation is tax-deductible and will help us provide support when needed most.
