Causes We Support
Australia is no stranger to extreme weather – bushfire, flooding, drought and skin-peeling heat are central to its history and mythology – with significant consequences for agriculture. The absence of disaster cover causes many individuals and the community to suffer severe economic and social losses.
We regard family violence as extremely serious and see the nature of violence in family relationships as particularly insidious because it is an abuse of trust. There is often a continuing threat to the victim’s safety or their life, or the lives of their children and sometimes to extended family members.
Australia is the second-wealthiest country in the world in terms of wealth per adult, but its poverty rate has become entrenched at a high level. It is currently 14th highest out of 36 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries. We believe that every person is of infinite value, every person matters.
The vast majority of extreme social challenges have their cause or effect in homelessness itself or the fear of becoming homeless. In the end, it seems that it will need to be the kindness of Business and their philanthropic leaders coupled with passionate not for profit volunteers that will need to step up to solve the major social challenge of our time.
Education is a significant predictor of future employment, welfare and health prospects. It improves a person’s ability to contribute socially and economically in the community. If we have young people who are well-educated and going on to employment, we’ll all prosper. We believe that is an excellent investment.
Every year around 21,000 teenagers and young adults in Australia are told their parent has cancer. The need to care for their parents often disrupts these young people’s efforts for increased social, emotional and financial independence. We help to raise funds and make Grants across every area of cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Every member of our team is a specialist in his or her field. Together, they operate a very lean cost structure, utilising volunteer and sponsored resources.
