Creating Community Connection

25 Jun 2020

Lendlease has always had a presence in our local communities where we operate.

That’s why we partner with like-minded organisations like Australian Red Cross through our Lendlease Foundation, to focus on the best social and economic outcomes for all. 

In these challenging and uncertain times, we know that communities are stronger when the people living in them are safe, belong and have opportunities to participate.

  • We were among the first corporate organisations nationally to volunteer with the Australian Red Cross COVID CONNECT program. Our people are using their skills and giving up their time to support this national telephone service for the COVID-19 pandemic to help prevent feelings of social isolation and loneliness.

  • In the Northern Territory, we’ve joined forces in a three-year partnership to support the Katherine community. Together, Lendlease and Red Cross will work closely with Katherine residents, harnessing their strengths and supporting them with tools and resources to help build vibrant and strong communities. 
  • To help those directly impacted by our devastating bushfires, we’ve also donated $500,000 to Red Cross who are distributing emergency grants to help people cover urgent expenses, while working closely with bushfire survivors, local organisations, community leaders to deliver tailored and long-term recovery programs.  Read more here.
  • Volunteering is in our blood – literally. Our people have been donating to Australian Red Cross Lifeblood for many years. In addition to this, we are currently exploring ways in which we can leverage Red Cross and other partners as a part of our annual Community Day.
