In the Australian region, 17 community groups were recently given a much-needed financial boost for addressing community needs in one or more of the following areas: community development, diversity and inclusion, skilling, training and employment, health and wellbeing. The grants ranged in value from $10,000 to $1,000.

One of the successful recipients of a Lendlease Foundation community grant was the Wollombi Rural Fire Brigade Service, located in the lower Hunter Valley, New South Wales. 

Lendlease employee Glenn O’Rourke has been volunteering for over 20 years with the Wollombi Rural Fire Brigade. “On behalf of the Wollombi Rural Fire Brigade, a big thank you to our Lendlease Foundation for the grant. While we are well funded as a brigade with fire-fighting tankers and other equipment, we rely heavily on grants and volunteer fundraising to enable us to build our capability as a brigade, particularly around community safety education. 

“Wollombi Brigade is recognised within the NSW Rural Fire Service as leaders and innovators in the delivery of community engagement. The $4,000 grant will make a significant contribution to the upgrade of our Community Safety Education Trailer which is used extensively with the primary objective of ensuring locals understand the risk of bushfire, are prepared for the event of bushfire and most importantly, have a Bushfire Survival Plan,” said Glenn. 

For more than 30 years, our Lendlease Foundation has provided an important vehicle for the company to nurture and support its employees and aid charities and communities where we have an involvement. 

Lendlease is proud of our employees who make a difference in the communities where they live and work.
