Workplace Giving Program
Northern Sydney Local Health District has partneredwith crisis support and homelessness services charity Dignity as part of the newWorkplace Giving Program.
The program allows staff to make a voluntary recurring or one off donation to the charity directly from their pay, with 100 per cent of donations used in delivering frontline services. Chief Executive Deb Willcox said she was humbled to welcome Dignity to the district. “Hearing firsthand about the work that Dignity is doing across the state, including in our LHD, highlights the need for homelessness services. It affects people from all walks of life,” she said.
“Our staff have shown their generosity with around 50 of us already signing up to support this wonderful cause.” The crowd also heard from Suzanne Hopman, the CEO and co-founder of Dignity about how the partnership will change the lives of so many for the better. “In the four years Dignity has been operating, we’ve provided 50,000 people with temporary crisis accommodation and have served more than 400,000 meals to those in need,” she said.
“I’m truly so thankful and very excited by this partnership with Northern Sydney Local Health District. “It will allow us to do even more for those who need a hot meal, a warm bed and a touch of kindness in what is a very difficult time.” Those wishing to find out more about Workplace Giving or signing up can do so by clicking the banner on the intranet.
