Improve mental health and wellbeing
We’re committed to helping Australians look after their mental health and wellbeing.
As a proud partner of Beyond Blue,1 we’re helping by:
- building community connections
- normalising conversations, reducing stigma and encouraging positive action around mental health
- increasing awareness and access to early intervention support services
Improve children's access to books and literacy materials
Giving all Australian children wider access to resources can help improve their literacy skills and open up a world of opportunities.
We’re working alongside communities, carers and children’s literacy experts to make sure all children, particularly those who are vulnerable, have more access to books and literacy materials for a better future.
We’ve partnered with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF)2 to use our vast network to deliver around 98,000 culturally appropriate children’s books to communities in remote locations each year.
Prepare for, respond to and recover from disaster
Australia Post is part of more than 4,000 Australian communities. This means that when disaster strikes, our people are often directly impacted along with their neighbours and friends. We’re also part of the support network people turn to for a helping hand.
In times of disaster, Australia Post accepts over-the-counter donations to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Response and Recovery Fund at participating Post Offices.3
These funds help provide immediate support and assist people to get back on their feet after a disaster, and start to recover and rebuild.
Australian of the Year Award
We are proud to sponsor the Australian of the Year Award, and to share these inspiring stories of hope and resilience from current and past award recipients to see us through these challenging times.
