Through evidence-based research, we have identified five key focus areas that we support:
Men’s mental and physical health - initiatives that promote and support positive physical and mental health for men.
Employment for youth with mental health issues – initiatives that provide a hand up for youth with mental health issues so they can be gainfully employed.
Women’s financial and physical security - initiatives that provide and support financial and physical security and to help women get back on their feet as a result of domestic violence.
Ageing population – initiatives that support positive ageing, the health needs of the aged or that assist with meeting the challenges of an ageing population.
Education – initiatives that provide a hand-up to assist with the education of those in necessitous circumstances or who have a disability.
We also have initiatives that support our members, their families and other members of the community in times of extreme need, to help them get back on their feet.
Our work to support the needs of contemporary families and communities in our key focus areas outlined above is achieved through:
Our Benevolence Assistance Program provides individuals a hand up in times of exceptional need, including those affected by a natural disaster. Details on this program can be found below:
