What does a partnership look like?

NSW FaCS, Westpac and CBA

In 2013 we partnered with NSW FaCS, Westpac and Commonwealth Bank to launch a $10 million social benefit bond to deliver the Resilient Families program.


We worked closely with both bodies to effectively transfer disability clients from NSW Government Direct Service Provision. 

New Horizons Learning Centres

Working extensively in the Learning and Development area, we support industry innovation and build capacity across the sector.

Assistive Technology Australia

We’re focused on working with technology delivery partners to enable efficient delivery of services to our clients.

Australian Red Cross

We work closely with the Australian Red Cross to deliver training services, and work with a range of community organisations to support community-based initiatives.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community partnerships

We proudly work alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander colleagues and organisations to meet the needs of families, children, and communities. Collaboration is key to innovation and sustainability, and we’re committed to exploring partnerships and stronger collaborative relationships.

In January 2019, the Mura Buai Torres Strait Wellbeing Service began delivering services to 14 islands across the Torres Strait in a partnership between Mura Kosker Sorority Inc. and The Benevolent Society. This partnership is a model for governments, mainstream and community controlled organisations seeking to grow and support the capacity of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community controlled sector to design and deliver the services their families and communities need.

Family Matters

We support Family Matters – an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led national campaign ensuring children and young people grow up safe and cared for in family, community and culture. Our involvement reflects the commitment in our strategic plan to reduce the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children entering Out of Home Care.

Cultural Capability Framework

The purpose of a Cultural Competency Framework for The Benevolent Society is to foster commitment and to action a coordinated approach with First Nations peoples, wherever and whenever they engage with the organisation.

This Framework was developed to guide mainstream Community Service Organisations in the development of management strategies, policies and direct practice which will provide better outcomes for First Nations Peoples and their families. The Benevolent Society adopted this Framework to guide the development of organisational behaviour.
