With the Holiday season quickly approaching, Indigenous helpline 13 Yarn is gearing up for a busy period.

The helpline is preparing for its first Christmas period by ensuring that workers are available 24/7 to pick up the phone to help First Nation’s People struggling this holiday season.

13 YARN’s National Manager Marjorie Anderson says that a big reason for the rise in calls is loneliness, and to get involved and invite anyone whose spending Christmas alone to our holiday gatherings.

If you’re needing to talk to someone this Christmas period, you can call 13 YARN on 13 92 76
