Thank you to the Jack Brockhoff Foundation whose support has enabled us to expand our Social Enterprise with more trained employees, new equipment, uniforms and vehicle maintenance.
With the help of generous supporter like the Jack Brockhoff Foundation we will be able to successfully scaleup our social enterprise and to continue to grow our client base enabling more people living with a disability to gain and sustain meaningful employment.
The grant will be used to;
- hire and train additional individuals living with a disability for our new teams as each new contract is signed
- purchase the necessary cleaning equipment and uniforms
- pay the running costs and insurance of a vehicle to transport the mobile car wash teams to the various work sites across Melbourne.
The Jack Brockhoff Foundation was established in 1979 by the late Sir Jack Brockhoff. Sir Jack Brockhoff was Chairman and Managing Director of Brockhoff Biscuits Pty Ltd, a business established by his grandfather in 1880.
Throughout his life, Sir Jack was keen to assist others in the community less fortunate than himself.
The Foundation exists to support the health and wellbeing of all Victorians.
The aim of the Community Grants Program is to support innovative programs that will have a lasting impact on communities throughout Victoria. The Grant awarded to OC Connections focuses on Innovative approaches to employment for people with a disability which aligns well with our Social Enterprise goals and objectives.
