QLD - Common Ground QLD
Common Ground Queensland has a vision to end homelessness in the communities in which they operate. For SUEZ Australia, we believe in supporting local activities and growing community involvement in the areas in which we operate and deliver our services. And as the provider of recycling and waste collection services for Brisbane City Council, the opportunity to support Common Ground achieve their goal of delivering a wellbeing and fitness program for their tenants in South Brisbane was one we could not pass by.
With their mission to create supportive housing solutions through effective public, private and community partnerships, Common Ground Queensland is addressing one of the basic fundamental human needs - the need to feel safe and secure in a place that you call your own.
Common Ground Queensland launched their Fitness and Wellbeing Centre Program in August and thanks to a $3,314 SUEZ Community Grant were able to purchase mobile training equipment and fitness aids to kit out the fitness centre.
The new equipment will provide their tenant community in South Brisbane with the opportunity to live a healthier and active life with the associated benefits of improved mental health, physical fitness, social interaction and recreation.
