RACV partners with Lifeline Australia to support vulnerable communities.

RACV, in conjunction with IAG, has partnered with Lifeline Australia to provide critical health services to vulnerable Victorian communities in the regions in which we operate.

The partnership will enable Lifeline’s tele-health service to broaden its reach into the regions and respond to the need of individuals and communities who have been impacted the most.


The $2 million funding package will enable Lifeline to provide more than 8000 tele-health counselling sessions for people in communities affected by the summer bushfires and COVID-19. It will also provide e-learning ‘Accidental Counsellor’ training for up to 3000 people. This training will equip counsellors with the skills to recognise the signs of mental distress or ill health and the ability to respond effectively and refer people to the most appropriate services.

RACV has a long history of being there for Victorians in need, and the partnership with Lifeline Australia will support vulnerable communities and help reduce long-term mental-health impacts of the summer bushfires and COVID-19. 

“The partnership will enable Lifeline’s tele-health service to broaden its reach into the regions and respond to the need of individuals and communities who have been impacted the most,” RACV Managing Director and CEO Neil Taylor said.
