Care, pride and community are the basis of the Cater Care Way. Through these values we recognise that community engagement is an integral part of our business.
Supporting the communities in which we live and work is as important to us as providing services to our clients. Here are a few examples of our activities.
- We proudly sponsor the Griffith University Safety Science Lab, an important centre for thought leadership in safety practice.
- As catering providers at university and TAFE campuses across Australia, we give annual scholarships to outstanding students.
- We support the Safety Institute of Australia in developing the knowledge, skill and shared learning of safety professionals.
- To encourage young adults in remote communities to further their education, we offer grants that assist promising students who want to study in major town centres.
We support local schools by providing kitchen tours, cooking classes and work placements. And we also offer recycling and vegetable growing donations to schools and community groups.
Caring for, and giving back to the communities in which we operate is important to us, and so we have formed a partnership with Uniting whose services cater for all stages of life, including quality early childhood education and care; services for vulnerable families, children and young people; disability programs and aged care.
Through this partnership we are able to work closely with Uniting to support them in areas that align our common values of care, pride and community to positively affect the lives of the less fortunate.
