Community engagement is paramount in all Villawood’s efforts. Assisting groups, sports bodies and others is critical to the sustainable growth and positive lifestyle of our residential communities.
Through The Villawood Foundation, we assist dozens of organisations: football, netball, athletics, cricket, special needs, men’s sheds, family services, fire brigades, triathlons, schools, service clubs, rugby, basketball, swimming, surf lifesaving, cultural festivals and many others.
We have long championed the Royal Childrens’ Hospital Good Friday Appeal, donating land and helping arrange its annual Charity Home Auction with Henley Homes, raising $10.4 million over the past 14 years. We also assist with Brisbane’s House for Life, raising vital funds for the Little Mater Miracles neo-natal care.
These auctions see hundreds of tradies, suppliers and volunteers come together to donate skills, materials and time to build, fit out and market the charity homes. Auction day is always an exciting affair with a giant family street carnival providing a colourful event for crowds of up to a thousand people.
Villawood also offers a Care Workers Support Package with rebates of up to $20,000 on block prices for nurses, paramedics, police, firefighters, teachers and carers – front-liners and essential workers who care for the community day in and day out, often without thanks.
The program is aimed at helping a part of the community that can’t always buy into property to do just that while, at the same time, boosting the human assets of Villawood’s communities.
