Corporate Partnerships

At HPA we encourage and value the support we receive from our Corporate partnerships,

  • Do you want to motive your team whilst giving back to the community?
  • Do you have a community service budget that you want to allocate?

What better way than to partner with HPA “Helping People Achieve” and support local Territorians with disabilities.

Please see Our Supporters for a full list of those we are currently partnered with.

Previous partnerships

This year we had a team of volunteers join us from Power & Water. They helped us to establish the new garden for our Community Hub at our Winnellie premises. With the team working alongside our staff and employees the garden was planted, mulched, fertilised, and watered in all in a single day.

 

In November 2014 HPA partnered with Deloitte the accounting firm as part of a day they run each year called “Impact Day”. On Impact Day Deloitte staff volunteered for HPA, they helped to transform the gardens at one of the Darwin Accommodation Services properties where some HPA clients live.

Events

We are always looking for volunteers to help out. All our events are well managed, safe, and volunteers are provided any training required.

Throughout the year we have a few major events such as the Health & Wellness Festival and Steps Towards Capability which would not go ahead without an army of supprtive volunteers.
