Creating socially inclusive communities
It’s important to us that all Australians feel they belong, are equally valued and can participate in society. When we connect with people from different backgrounds and perspectives, we can reduce social isolation and exclusion to create a more inclusive Australia. Below are a few key initiatives we’re involved with to help create a more inclusive society.
Inclusive Australia Project
In 2017, we jointly convened more than 100 people from corporate, not-for-profit and community sectors to discuss the behaviour change required to make Australia a more economically and socially inclusive society. This project aims to bring organisations and individuals together to work towards an Australia where people feel they belong, are safe and respected, and where difference is celebrated.
Since 2014, we have partnered with Netball Australia to create the One Netball program.
Through the power of grassroots sports, Australia Post and Netball Australia aim to create an environment where everyone is welcome to participate.
The Big Issue
We are a Principal Partner of The Big Issue and also a proud partner of the Women’s Subscription Enterprise, a program that provides job opportunities for homeless, marginalised and disadvantaged women through The Big Issue subscriptions.
Supporting digital inclusion
In 2016, we collaborated with corporate and not-for-profit organisations across Australia to establish the Australian Digital Inclusion Alliance.
The vision of the Alliance is to harness the collective skills, knowledge and capabilities of organisations across the country to reduce the digital divide, and enable greater social and economic participation for all Australians.
We're passionate about supporting programs that enable everyone to build the skills and confidence to participate and thrive in a digital world.
