Community and diversity

Community investment

We are dedicated to building long-term partnerships with organisations that are committed to supporting youth, education and improving the quality of life of people through a combination of pro bono, community programmes, volunteer support and sponsorship.

We currently support three projects that promote connecting our communities to create positive change:

  • Mothers Project
  • Homework HELP club
  • HelpTank

Our annual Fundraising Month is another key component of our community investment programme. This year we raised more than $8,000 for The Neonatal Trust and more than $20,000 for the Child Poverty Action Group. Last year we raised $44,000 for Women's Refuge and $53,000 for Child Cancer Society in 2015.
