Story

The Newcastle office has a long and strong history of supporting its local community. For example, staff in the Newcastle office have been integral in organising the annual Triathlon, as well as raising funds and undertaking pro bono legal work for Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and the Cancer Council NSW. The office also supports other organisations such as Friends with Dignity by donating household items for their domestic violence shelters and the Nappy Collective by donating nappies for their clients suffering disadvantage.

Collectively, we can have a real impact so we encourage you to get involved in any campaigns at the national or Newcastle office level. You can also create your own campaigns but make sure you let the Community team know about them, so we can support you with your charitable interests.

Get in touch with the Newcastle Community team if you have any questions or ideas:

  • Local Pro Bono and Community Partner - Alan McKelvey (x7309)

  • Local Pro Bono Coordinator - Andreena Kardamis (x7259)

  • Local Community Coordinator - Heidi Thrift (x7209)
