Retail Manager Shiralee Tilling told News of the Area, “We decided to open a shop in Nelson Bay as the Port Stephens community have been fantastic supporters of Lifeline and we are excited to give more to this area.”

The store is staffed by a mixture of paid employees and a team of fashion loving staff.

All proceeds from the store will go to support Lifeline’s local crisis support and suicide prevention services.

Lifeline Hunter and Central Coast is largely self-funded, relying on its 12 shops to generate the necessary revenue for its services.

Lifeline provides a 24/7 helpline for anyone feeling suicidal or in crisis on 131114.

They have a range of online tools and can also put you in touch with a support worker or provide a referral to other local services.

Both relationship and financial counselling services are available as well as a whole range of other initiatives.

The shop is open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday 9am-4pm and Sunday 10am-4pm.

A donation bin is situated outside the shop during opening hours where you can place donations.

Lifeline are in need of volunteers and a pack can be obtained by calling into the shop.

Lifeline Hunter and Central Coast save the lives of 5000 people annually but rely on community support for more than 80% of their funding.

The shop is a welcome addition to the Nelson Bay retail community.
