Our charity partners

2018 was a big year for our community engagement team. Find out about the vital services our charity partners provide to communities across NSW.

Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House Randwick (RMHR) provides a ‘home away from home’ for families of seriously ill children.

Since opening in 1991, RMHR has provided more than 25,000 bed nights for families in need. RMHR operates two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located inside the Royal North Shore Hospital and the Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick and the Ronald McDonald Learning Program.

In 2016, EISS Super entered a four year partnership with RMHR providing both financial support and opportunities for staff to get involved and make a difference to the lives of seriously ill children and their families by preparing meals.

Bayside Women’s Shelter

Domestic and family violence is the leading cause of homelessness for Australian women and their children.1

To help families facing this crisis, Bayside Women’s Shelter provides vital support in South East Sydney.

Run by volunteers, Bayside Women’s Shelter provides crisis assistance, meals and a comfortable place to stay for women of any age, sexuality, cultural and linguistic diversity, disability or mental illness.

Opened recently, the shelter is now fully operational and provides support to women and children in need.

EISS Super is proud to be a gold partner in the shelter’s first year of operation.

MATES in Construction

Construction workers are six times more likely to die from suicide than an accident at work. Every year 190 Australians working in the construction industry take their own lives meaning we lose a construction worker to suicide every second day.2

Created in 2008 by the Australian Building and Construction Industry, MATES in Construction (MIC) aims to reduce this alarming figure.

The MIC program delivers training programs on worksites to raise awareness about suicide in the workplace and provide practical guidance.

EISS Super is proud to support MATES in Construction as a National Brand Partner until June 2020.

Argyle Housing

60% of Australia’s homeless population live in regional and rural communities.3

To help combat this issue, Argyle Housing provides housing and education support services to communities in regional NSW, South West Sydney and the ACT.

Argyle Tertiary Scholarships are part of an annual education program for tenants, providing grants for college, university or TAFE students.

EISS Super is pleased to be able to fund 10 Argyle Tertiary Scholarships over the next year.
