A Liberal Government will ensure the future of Lifeline WA’s crisis support call service with a $5 million commitment for the next five years.
“Currently, Lifeline receives $600,000 per annum from the State Government. We will significantly increase government funding to this important service to $1 million per year for five years,” Liberal leader Liza Harvey said.
“This additional funding is critical to provide desperately needed services for Lifeline WA. In these uncertain times we need critical support services like this more than ever.
“I call on the Labor Government to match our $5 million commitment.
“Lifeline WA does an amazing job in times of crisis like we are experiencing during this COVID-19 pandemic and the Liberals are recognising their importance with this commitment to increased funding.”
