Telco Together Foundation

The Industry’s Foundation for collectively addressing social challenges in an increasingly connected world.

Our Goal

Our goal is to leverage the power of an entire industry to positively impact some of Australia’s most complex social challenges.

Domestic &
Family Violence

1 in 6 women have experienced physical or sexual violence by a current or previous partner since the age of 15 (ABS 2017a).

Modern Slavery

Two of Australia’s biggest trading partners, China & India, account for nearly half the world’s modern slaves (World Population Review 2021).

In Australia, alone, there’s an estimated 15,000 people living in conditions of modern slavery
(The Global Slavery Index 2018).

Youth Mental
Health

Right now, 1 in 4 young people in Australia is living with a mental health difficulty. But there’s an even bigger problem, 70% of those who need help don’t get it (ReachOut.com 2021).

Get Involved

Whether you’re a leader within the industry or working on the front line, there’s a range of opportunities to get involved under each of the following programs of work.

Where complex social issues of relevance to the industry and our communities are collaboratively discussed, addressed and actioned. Telco

Together Foundation members are currently implementing collective cross-industry initiatives to reduce Modern Slavery and Domestic & Family Violence.

Small Change Big Change is a fundraising program that combines Workplace Giving, On-Bill Donations and Volunteering with the goal of building resilient young Australians.

The money raised goes towards a wide range of education and engagement programs designed to promote good mental health, a strong sense of identity and connection beyond connectivity.
