We aim to make a meaningful impact by fostering education, promoting improved emotional well-being, and supporting local efforts in sports, arts, STEM advancement, and opportunities.
We are committed to rallying behind the needs of our team members who are dedicated to improving the lives of others in their communities.
The mission of the Welcome Break Charitable Fund is to provide essential grants to organisations that address the educational, mental health, and tangible needs of our served communities.
We prioritise projects that align with our Vision, have a significant local impact, and focus on supporting various vulnerable groups, including individuals with additional needs, older persons, disadvantaged youth, LGBTQIA+ community, and refugees and migrants.
By upholding our principles, we aim to create lasting positive change, enhance community well-being, and ensure that resources are channelled effectively to those in need.
