Giving back to the community

We provide time, effort and direction to a number of individuals, community groups and charities as part of our values and commitment to making a positive impact to the lives of others.

This includes our strategic partnership with Feel the Magic – an Australian charity that supports children experiencing grief. Feel the Magic seeks to create a world where grieving children are supported to reach their full potential. This is achieved through Camp Magic – the country’s leading grief education and support program, which provides grieving children with a safe place to grow.
