As part of our industry-wide commitment to the community, Clubs Australia forms partnerships with leading non-profits and charitable organisations.
Australian Red Cross
In 2015, Clubs Australia formed a partnership with the Australian Red Cross to address the often unrecognised impact of heat waves on vulnerable community members.
Statistics show that heatwaves are a hidden killer, responsible for causing more deaths in Australia than any other natural hazard, including floods, cyclones and bushfires.
A 12 month pilot program will explore the ways in which clubs and the Red Cross can work together to assist at-risk individuals and prevent heat-related stress and illness. This program is funded by a $50,000 grant from Clubs Australia.
