Together, we can make a difference where it matters most. Your community is our community.
Community Event, Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health, Muswellbrook
"The funds received from Aurizon enabled the CRRMH to organise and provide a free community family event within the Hunter Valley region, giving farmers, business owners, and all those impacted by the drought an opportunity to connect, laugh, and relax.”
Fence Repair, BlazeAid, Cloncurry
“Aurizon's grant to BlazeAid ensured that several volunteer-led camps were established to rebuild fence lines and any other structures that had been devasted or destroyed diring recent flooding events. The camps were in Richmond, Julia Creek, and Winton."
Theatre in Education, Constable Care Child Safety Foundation, Kalgoorlie
“Through a 12-week theatre program students worked through real-life scenarios to learn to understand and resolve issues concerning healthy relationships, bullying prevention, drug and alcohol use and mental health awareness.”
