Stories of Success
Our company has been a major sponsor of Menslink for three years. They provide free counselling, volunteer mentoring and education programs to young men. Menslink helps young blokes reach their full potential and become the great adult men they want to be. They believe everything is possible for them, their families, their mates and community.
In 2016-17, they supported 470 young men through tough times, an increase of 32% from 2015-16. They also presented their ‘Silence is Deadly’ mental health presentation 77 times to over 10,300 young men. This is an increase of over 50% from the previous year.

SouthCare Helicopter Trust
One of our first grants in 2003 was a $1,000 donation to the helicopter trust. In 2011 our Boorowa, Braidwood, Bungendore, Calwell, Curtin, Jerrabomberra and Wanniassa Community Bank branches, commenced our $50,000 per year partnership.
We were very proud to have been supporters of the now retired SouthCare helicopter and its almost 7000 life-changing missions since 1998. We join the community in looking forward as the ACT and NSW government fund a new and enhanced aero-medical service for our community commencing 2 April 2017.
Juliet Moody, comedian and founder of the Fearless Initiative, fled a violent relationship a decade ago. She put these two experiences together to host the first Fearless Comedy Gala in 2016. With our company as a major sponsor, she leveraged our $5,000 sponsorship into raising over $30,000 for the local Domestic Violence Crisis Service in Canberra.
