Our staff have donated over $750,000 to local charities and community groups.

Our Staff Donation Scheme forms part of our Community Assist Program and is a great example of the generosity and community spirit that is alive and well within Newcastle Permanent. 

Every Newcastle Permanent employee has the opportunity to contribute a donation from their fortnightly salary to the Staff Donation Scheme. Each year we raise more than $60,000 in staff donations, which is distributed to four worthy charities or community groups. Since the Staff Donation Scheme was established in 1997, we have donated over $750,000 to more than 50 charities and community groups.

Bears of Hope

Bears of Hope aims to improve the facilitation of the healing journey for families experiencing pregnancy or infant loss, through the donation of a Bear and support package for bereaved parents in memory of their child. They also provide access to support groups, hospital and home visits by charity members and counsellors, newsletters and support material, community events, and phone and email support. Part of our staff donation was allocated to issue a ‘Cuddle Cot’ system to hospitals throughout the Upper Hunter Region, allowing heartbroken families the opportunity to spend more time with their baby to say goodbye in comfortable surroundings.

Little Wings

Little Wings provides a professional and free flight-and-ground transport service for children from rural and regional NSW needing access to specialised medical services and treatment in major centres. Their aim is to support families to reduce the financial burden, emotional strain and travel fatigue associated with long distance travel. Little Wings transport families with regular ongoing medical appointments and bring children home for short breaks during their treatment to be with family and friends. Our Staff Donation was used to support the operational cost of flight services including aviation fuel and maintenance.
