Downer’s Mining division began a three-year, $150,000 partnership with The Smith Family in 2014. The Smith Family is Australia’s leading education-oriented charity.
Downer’s support contributes to programs including Learning for Life, which aims to help disadvantaged children and young people gain an education by providing emotional, practical and financial support. IN 2014, the program was delivered to over 36,000 people nationally.
In March 2014, Downer piloted the Work Inspiration program – an innovative work experience program developed in the UK and brought to Australia by The Smith Family.
