BECOME A PEER-SUPPORT LISTENING SERVICE VOLUNTEER

Help us to help  others.

ABOUT NURSELIFELINE

Our vision is to provide a space for all nurses, midwives, health care support workers and the friends and family of such staff to decompress and chat with a peer via a confidential listening service.

 

Developed collaboratively by a group of regular nurses and midwives united by a shared understanding and common experience, Nurse Lifeline also aims to foster a positive professional community, provide encouragement, and empower those within the nursing and midwifery workforce. We believe it’s time to get talking about mental and emotional health and wellbeing.

WHAT IS IN IT FOR YOU
