How we are funded

Youthline is made up of a number of separate legal entities who come together to provide our national helpline services (phone/TXT/email). 

Each centre receives funding from a range of local supporters, while funding for our National helpline service is sourced collectively.

Overall Youthline's support comes from three key areas. These are:

  • Grants and Philanthropic Donors (approximately 60%)
  • Partners and Sponsors (approximately 20%)
  • General Fundraising, including individual donors, peer to peer fundraising and events (approximately 20%).
