New Lifeline centre for Nowra


Lifeline is officially opening a new call centre in Nowra today to help people still affected by the bushfires.

The organisation is reporting a 25 per cent increase in calls since the bushfires and COVID19.

CEO Renee Green says their trained crisis supporters can assist in a number of areas including trauma, relationship issues and financial difficulty.

An opening ceremony will be taking place but will be low key due to COVID19.

To contact the 13 HELP Bushfire Recovery Line, phone 13 43 57.
