Corporate and community training

Lifeline Melbourne offers a range of training courses to the corporate, government and community organisations, all delivered by qualified and experienced facilitators.

We deliver relevant, creative and engaging training programs, with a focus on understanding and skills development for groups of employees or volunteers.

Our clients include government departments and agencies; superannuation, insurance and banking companies; peak industry bodies; health organisations and emergency services.

And, as a not-for-profit organisation, all training fees are channelled into helping Lifeline Melbourne support our community through the 13 11 14 Crisis Support Service.

Let us tailor a training program for you

We’ll tailor our training to meet the needs of your organisation.

During an initial consultation, we’ll get a better understanding of your knowledge and skills requirements to ensure we provide relevant and worthwhile training for your business. We can use practical examples and scenarios provided by you throughout the course which will provide maximum benefit to your employees.

All information shared during our consultations and throughout our courses remains strictly confidential.

We have both onsite (Melbourne CBD) and offsite options available for training. Should you have suitable meeting room facilities in your office, we can come to you.
