A Community Connector is considered to be a member of the community who has frequent access to other local members e.g. through a work environment or sporting group. Community Connectors will have the opportunity to be trained in the Lifeline Accidental Counsellor information course at no cost, and be equipped to connect community members in need to appropriate local and national services. Accidental Counsellor is for community members who would like to be able to safely and effectively support someone in distress or experiencing a crisis. It is an open course, with no pre-existing skills or knowledge required. Accidental Counsellor aims to provide participants with the skills to support
another in a moment of need, and the self-care tools to ensure their own
wellbeing is in focus. While completion of the course does not make participants qualified counsellors, it builds confidence in how to provide appropriate support in these moments.

The Lifeline Accidental Counsellor course equips participants with
the essential skills and structure to:
• Recognise when a person is in crisis
• Respond in an appropriate and compassionate manner, and
• Refer the person to a suitable service
