Lending our communities a Helping Hand


EACH fortnight Federal Group provides $1000 to a club, community group, volunteer organisation or individual in need, as nominated by staff.

Staff members are asked to share detail about their involvement with the organisation and explain how $1000 would help them deliver greater outcomes for local communities.

Helping Hand is one of many community support initiatives and sponsorships proudly undertaken by Federal Group.

Here we share details of some of our most recent recipients.
