For those who are unaware, Telco Together Foundation is the industry’s foundation for collectively addressing social challenges in an increasingly connected world.

We’re in a unique position of having direct access to nearly every business and consumer in the country, employing a further 70,000 people who are helping draw on core capabilities and access to technology to drive significant social impact.

It reflects our belief that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, but today we acknowledge one of the most valued parts of our Small Change Big Change program and that’s the commitment of Aussie Broadband’s generous customers.

“Being good to people is a fundamental part of the fabric of Aussie Broadband. We’re so pleased that many of our customers share that view and have opted into the Small Change Big Change program, donating a dollar every month. We never dreamed when we started this partnership that it would hit a major milestone like $200,000.  We want to sincerely thank our customers for participating; it’s their generosity that has enabled the program to reach this point.”

Phillip Britt, Managing Director, Aussie Broadband

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.

The $200,000 means that approximately 19,149 young Australians have been given access to a wide range of education and engagement programs that promote good mental health, a strong sense of identity and connections beyond connectivity.

“We’re making a difference in the lives of young Australians and we can only do this through the generosity of partners like Aussie Broadband and their amazing customers. Small Change Big Change is growing, thanks to your support. This growth means that we can reach more young people and look at future opportunities to make an even greater impact. Aussie Broadband along with some other amazing Telco companies are really getting behind this program and I can’t wait to provide more support for the future of our country – young Australians”

“Even more important to us is the impact that Small Change Big Change is having on the lives of young people across Australia. Building resilience for young Australians through mental health support, indigenous support and career mentoring is – let’s be frank – the bit that floats our boat. We’re really looking forward to seeing what Small Change Big Change can achieve for young Australians next.”

Phillip Britt, Managing Director, Aussie Broadband

“It’s never been more important for young people to be supported with their mental health and to have a strong sense of identity as they navigate through the rapidly changing world, and with the help of organisation like Aussie broadband and their customers, we are able to make a real difference in the lives of young Australians in need.”

Renee Bowker, Executive Director, Telco Together Foundation
