The team @home share the values and vision for our local community, with the big picture always being how we can make a difference to those less fortunate. We are privileged to be a part of such a special community of people who support, encourage and care and we are all committed to our personal contribution.
Aside from supporting many charities and fundraising events, we have a very special in-house initiative where each month a team member elects a community event that we all support and contribute to. It is not always about money, sometimes it is as simple as a kind gesture, doing something thoughtful and selfless. The reward we get is the feeling that we are doing something bigger ourselves, something meaningful.
We will continue to update this page with our latest community projects so stay tuned!
The team @home are proud supporters of The Smith Family, Australia's largest children's charity helping disadvantaged Australian children get the most out of their education so they can create better futures for themselves. We specifically arranged to sponsor a child in our local community which will support a child in need to participate fully in their education so they can achieve better life outcomes overall. The evidence-based programs provide targeted aid that begins early in a child's life, supporting them to attend school, to stay engaged and motivated, and to go on to further study, training, or employment. Without this educational support, these children can have limited choices, opportunities and outcomes in life. Investing in the education of a disadvantaged child delivers long-term positive benefits for them, their family and potentially generations to come.
A charity close to our hearts and of many who have been affected by Cancer directly or indirectly with family and friends. Our local Cancer Council provides much needed support to those suffering the illness and also their families. @home provides support in a number of ways, hosting and participating in fundraising events and initiatives throughout the year.
@home Property sponsored with pleasure the UNO Bruno fundraising event on the 16th March 2019 in support of the Cancer Council Tasmania. This brave Family has faced some incredibly challenging times over the past year and they want to give back to the people who have supported them in so many ways. Two of our team members also participated in the UNOBruno Relay for Life team who together raised over $32,000 for the local Cancer Council, an incredible effort!
We are excited to be Sponsoring Tyson Rusden representing Tasmania in the Australian under 11 Futsal team in June in Italy! What a little champion! Good luck Tyson!
Each year we have a fun competition for the kiddies in our community at a time of year we all love @home, Christmas! We pop up random Santa signs on our homes for rent and all that the kids need to do to score a chocolate filled stocking is post a selfie with Santa on our facebook page. We absolutely love seeing the snaps flow in and we have seen many children now take a photo each year so we see them grow next to the sign, how special is that!
