iiCare: iiNet’s community partnership program!
iiNet’s iiCare community program is all about partnering with charities, community groups and not for profits who support youth or mental health programs or initiatives. iiCare aims to better connect the community which has helped us grow from a small company of two to the ASX 200 listed company we are today.
Major Community Partners:
iiNet is proud to be a major partner of Lifeline WA powering their Crisis Support Chat and fundraising for them annually. Crisis Support Chat provides real time support for people who are overwhelmed and having difficulty coping or staying safe.
Thanks to iiNet’s support the Crisis Support Chat has been extended allowing more Australians connect to this much needed platform.
In 2013 iiNet staff took part in Lifeline’s Stress Down Day, donning pjs and onesies to raise money for Lifeline WA. Staff attended Lunch and learn sessions presented by Lifeline and enjoyed herbal tea and massages throughout the day.
Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation
Thanks to our proud partnership with the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, iiNet have been able to upgrade the PMH Megazone with five brand new computer pods with superfast internet connections. The pods allow families access to the ‘net while they’re in hospital with their sick children, helping them stay connected to friends and family and on top of bills.
Autism West’s Team Sprint Cup
Since 2008 iiNet have been the proud naming sponsor of Autism West’s major fundraising event, the Team Sprint Cup. The event challenges people to a swimming comp and sees people from all over WA to come together to raise funds and awareness for Autism West.
Our passionate staff drive our giving program at iiNet. Every year they select 12 charities which they generously donate to each Friday throughout the year. Fun themed days help to keep their enthusiasm alive so it’s not unusual to see staff donning fancy dress or eating pancakes all in the name of charity.
iiNet staff love to run (or walk or ride) in the sun to support the community. Whether you’re running in the City to Surf in Perth or walking Round the Bays in Auckland, iiNet staff are involved and having fun!
