We make a difference.

We’re committed to being an active and positive member of the communities we operate in.

Our community approach follows three key themes: Embracing and supporting Australia's diverse cultures, inspiring and elevating women, and supporting and partnering with rural Australia and First Nations communities.

Telco Together Foundation

The Telco Together Foundation (TTF) was established in 2011 by former Vocus Chairman, Vaughan Bowen. It unites Australian technology companies in support of a number of charities, focussing on mental health, homelessness, refugees, and indigenous communities.

We provide the TTF with office space and supplies, pays a yearly membership of $50,000 which goes towards key charities. We also conduct fundraising through our Workplace Giving Program.

Small Change Big Change

What began as a small fundraising pilot with a sample of our Commander customers has now led to Telco Together’s most successful fundraising initiative.

“A small idea from a group of people five years ago has made a huge change with tens of thousands of small businesses contributing and many thousands of lives impacted” – Antony de Jong, Chief Executive, Business & Consumer, Vocus.

Small Change Big Change empowers hundreds of thousands of telco customers by giving them the choice of adding a small donation to their bill every month. The impact has been enormous and as a result of the generosity of our customers, we’re fast approaching $1M raised.

These funds help build resilient young Australians by supporting a wide range of community programs designed to promote good mental health, a strong sense of identity and connections beyond connectivity.

We offer all permanent team members two paid volunteering leave days each year. Using these days, our team has made significant contributions volunteering with a number of charities including Ronald McDonald House, Foodbank, and the Salvation Army, providing much-needed time in their facilities to support disadvantaged communities.
