Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury is one of 40 Lifeline centres across Australia. We are accredited by Lifeline Australia and are required to adhere to the national standards while operating under a local Board of Governance. We are also responsible for ensuring the decisions of the national Board are implemented at our centre at Gordon.
Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury commenced operation on 4 December 1967, in an old house in Hornsby kindly provided by Hornsby Council. Over the course of the next twenty years, the organisation slowly but steadily grew, although right from the outset it was almost entirely reliant on volunteer effort.
