Find out how You Can Too!
We all have something we care about, but sometimes we’re not sure how we can help or find a way to get involved.
This is – at its heart – what Lions Australia is all about.
Joining a Lions Club introduces you to people who also want to make a difference by giving their valuable time and effort to improve their communities, and the world.
And we want you to know that you can, too!
Lions Australia is an apolitical and secular organisation dedicated to helping improve the lives of others and to support our communities.
There are numerous ways we do this including disaster and emergency relief, health and medical research, community service projects and youth leadership, and even environmental projects.
Is supporting a health project your thing?
Lions Australia has a proud history in Medical Research, including the development of the bionic ear and cervical cancer vaccine, Gardasil.
We also provide funding for a range of research initiatives including childhood cancers, diabetes, prostate cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease and autism.
Lions have always been a part of emergency support within Australia.
Whether it be by providing direct help as members of the local bushfire brigade or SES, helping out as tradespeople in rebuilding efforts, providing food, clothing and a friendly face to emergency workers; or raising dollars to help local communities recover – Lions are there.
We believe that supporting and developing young people is a critical part of our future.
There are many ways we work with and support our youth: Our LEO clubs are for youth aged 12 – 30. The Lions Youth of the Year, Youth Exchange and Peace Poster programs are other great ways young people can get involved in different activities, learn new skills and explore their own potential.
Lions Clubs across Australia are harnessing the power of teamwork and community spirit to help nurture and protect the environment.
Projects include smaller community greening programs, tree planting, wetland conservation and restoration, new parks and playgrounds – just to name a few.
These projects are often identified by Lions members and are sometimes done in collaboration with local councils or schools.
These are just some of the many ways that Lions all over Australia – and around the world – are involved in helping others.
Perhaps you’re interested in activities in your own area – local community help or environment projects.
One of the many great things about being a Lion is that you can support the Lions Australia national projects, but you can also suggest ideas for those issues that you personally care about. Perhaps you know of someone in your community in need.
Lions members will be there with you to help make it happen.
