Local Focus Charities
We select local charities by asking our people what social issues they are most concerned about and then aligning with charities in these areas. We form strong and successful relationships focused on providing real outcomes.
We also provide our people with the opportunity to support their favourite charities by matching their donations via our workplace giving program – a difference that sets us apart from many other corporate foundations.
EY Australia currently supports 10 charities across our Australian offices.
Adelaide supports victims of domestic violence
Hutt Street helps vulnerable people with day-to-day necessities including meals and showers, emotional support, counselling and recreational events. This year we are raising funds to provide education and training programs for their client service team to help them support victims of domestic violence.
Brisbane supports deaf children and young people with full-time care needs
Hear and Say is a leading paediatric auditory-verbal and cochlear implant centre helping children achieve age appropriate speech and language. This can enable them to attend local schools, have wider employment choices and better integration with the hearing world. This year we are raising funds to sponsor children in the Hear and Say Program.
Youngcare Currently more than 7,500 young Australians with full-time care needs are living in aged care due to lack of alternatives. There are also 700,000 more young Australians being cared for at home by family and friends, often with limited support. This year we are raising funds to modify homes and help young people with high care needs stay in their homes.
Canberra supports victims of domestic violence
YWCA of Canberra delivers 28 quality programs, across 20 locations. This year we are raising funds for the ‘Making Safe Connections’ program to support victims of domestic violence who are ready to transition back into the community. The program will include budget management, living skills and emotional support.
Melbourne supports victims of domestic violence and animal welfare
Berry Street supports children and families suffering from the impact of family violence, serious abuse and neglect. This year we are raising funds to provide women and their children with the means to keep themselves safe and/or create a new life with items such as phone rental, furniture, manchester and clothing.
Lort Smith Animal Hospital cares for animals undergoing medical treatment and also provides shelter, adoption and fostering services for abandoned and relinquished animals. This year we are raising funds for veterinary and surgical treatment of animals surrendered to the shelter.
Perth supports young people at risk and animal welfare
St Vincent de Paul's (Youth) helps disadvantaged young people learn new skills, live independently and contribute to our society. This year we are raising funds to allow young people to attend a camp to learn life skills such as respect, self-discipline, communication skills and team work.
Saving Animals from Euthanasia (SAFE) works with unwanted, abandoned and neglected cats and dogs through foster carers who open their homes to homeless cats and dogs whilst permanent homes are sought. This year we are raising funds for veterinary bills for animals helped by SAFE.
Sydney supports victims of domestic violence and people with Cerebral Palsy
YWCA NSW focuses on developing life skills and connection for people experiencing critical and vulnerable times, including those affected by domestic violence. This year we are raising funds for the ‘Safe Families Project’, an education program for disadvantaged families which promotes safe relationships for both children and parents.
