Donate goods

People who are homeless or suffering from drug or alcohol addictions are often in need of basic essentials such as clean underwear.

We rely on generous donations to help keep our services running smoothly, and always appreciate food, toiletries and clothes to offer to people at our drop in, and for residents at our residential recovery hostel, Acorn House.

“I was referred by Lifeline and it was the best thing I ever done coming here. I’ve had lots of help."
Phil, Acorn House resident.
