Reece Cares about making a difference

Today, Reece is proud to launch its new approach to Corporate Social Responsibility, Reece Cares.

While Reece has always been committed to helping its people, customers and the community, Reece Cares takes a focused approach to driving change.

Communications Lead, Lizzy Geremia says coming to work each day is about so much more than a pay check and the new program is designed around the issues that matter most to Reece.

“We know our people and customers are proud to be a part of Reece and want to make a difference,” Lizzy said.

“Reece Cares empowers them to do that in four ways: through workplace giving, taking steps towards reconciliation, improving mental health, and through our three new charity partnerships.”

“We’re delighted to announce that Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute, SANE Australia and The Reach Foundation are our charity partners for the next three years.”

Reece’s charity partners were selected based on the ability for the organisations to work together towards causes that have the greatest impact on Reece’s people and customers - mental health, men’s health, disease prevention, supporting rural and regional communities and creating youth employment pathways.

CEO of The Reach Foundation Sasha Lawrence said the organisation is incredibly proud to partner with Reece to help deliver its Diverge program to a wider audience of young Australians.

“For us, partners like Reece are critical in delivering our vision to impact the lives of young people,”

“This partnership is a great example of business and community working together to have a direct, meaningful and long-lasting impact on the lives and career outcomes of young people in Australia.”

SANE Australia CEO said the partnership with Reece aims to improve health, social and economic outcomes for Australians affected by complex mental health issues, particularly those at most risk, men and people living in rural and regional areas.

“Our three-year ‘hero’ project with Reece will support SANE’s capacity to expand its SANE Help Centre, the only support service of its kind in Australia. In turn, a staff and customer engagement program will also support development of Reece’s wellness strategy.”

Professor Tom Marwick, Director at the Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute said they are partnering with Reece to influence and change the health and wellbeing of tradies all around the country.

“Cardiac disease remains a major disease burden in Australia, and it’s avoidable! Our vision is to personalise predicting, intervening and preventing heart disease and diabetes - years before disease strikes. Through this partnership we will work together to prevent and improve the body’s plumbing - our pipes matter!”

Reece Cares works hand-in-hand with The Reece Grant, Reece’s external grant program supporting tradies who volunteer their time to give back to community projects locally and abroad. Together the two programs create even more opportunities to make a difference.
