We are extremely excited to announce that Glad Group has joined Mission Australia’s supporter program. This new national community partnership will be an important part of the way we deliver on our focus to drive inclusion and equality, and promote safety and wellbeing, for our local communities and our people. Glad Group supports Mission Australia
Mission Australia is a national charity motivated by a shared vision of an Australia where everyone has a safe home and can thrive. Since 1859, they have been standing alongside people in need, offering real hope that has a lasting impact. Every day, they deliver homelessness crisis and prevention services, provide social and affordable housing, assist struggling families and children, address mental health issues, fight substance dependencies, support people with disability, and much more.
Mission Australia believes a person’s circumstances shouldn’t define their future and that given the right support, everyone can reach their full potential. That’s why they stand together with Australians in need until they can stand for themselves.
The Glad Group Family and Mission Australia helping each other
With a national footprint, all of Glad Group’s employees will have the opportunity to engage and connect with Mission Australia. There are many different ways for us all to get involved and support, or access, Mission Australia’s fantastic services. This includes fundraising activities, volunteering our time and learning more about the different programs Mission Australia offers, and amplifying across the communities we serve.
Steve Iloski, Glad Group’s Executive Director notes: “I’m really excited by the opportunities that our partnership with Mission Australia present. Our organisations are very aligned in our approach and values, and we want to form a deep and long-lasting relationship with them, to create real community impact and provide support for vulnerable Australians.”
Giving through community partnerships
Glad Group’s participation in the Mission Australia Supporter Program complements our other major community partnership with the Property Industry Foundation (PIF). We have been a long-time supporter of PIF who aim to increase the availability of transitional housing for homeless youth (aged 25 and under). Our support of PIF extends beyond our annual financial and fundraising support, thanks to our Maintenance team who are committed to delivering one day a quarter of general maintenance support for the many transitional houses run by PIF and their charity partners.
