Call us about anything that may be troubling you! The LifeLine motto is:
“If it important to you, than it is important to us!”
To all LifeLine Ekurhuleni Counsellors Who are still with us, and who have left.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts
And we are never, ever the same.
LifeLine Ekurhuleni has been coordination projects within our community which include the following:
This project functions to address the demands for services of the survivors of sexual abuse, witnesses of violence and victims of crime. Thereafter, intermediaries convey the meaning of prosecution questions to the relevant children in a manner so as to facilitate an optimal understanding in order to provide adequate responses.
LifeLine Ekurhuleni Monitors ensure that children’s rights are not violated and that members of the police force are adhering to the Child Justice Act when it comes to detention of children in conflict with the law.
