In addition to providing local employment and service opportunities, we support a range of ongoing initiatives that help create healthy, vibrant and cohesive communities.
Project Based Initiatives
Decmil is always looking for ways to engage with and improve the communities in which we operate. This is particularly the case in remote areas where our projects are based.
Our social responsibility mandate ensures that every project we undertake has a core component that focusses on giving back to local communities.
Over the years Decmil people have undertaken a range of activities and initiatives including organised charity events, upgrades to community and social infrastructure and the donation of sporting equipment and educational supplies.
Staff Charity Events
At Decmil we encourage our team members to participate in company organised charity events such as Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea (Cancer Council), World’s Greatest Shave (Leukaemia Foundation), HBF Run For A Reason (various charities) and Bridge to Brisbane (various charities).
We also encourage staff-driven events and activities along with volunteering opportunities.
Starlight Children’s Foundation
While health professionals focus on treating the illness, the Starlight Foundation is there to lift the spirits of children, giving them the opportunity to laugh, play and simply be kids.
Working with the Foundation on a national partnership arrangement, we raise money for the foundation and assist with donating ‘experiences’ to seriously ill children and rooms within the hospitals where children can get together and play. We proudly sponsor the Five Chefs Dinner in Western Australia, Queensland and Victoria, as well as providing volunteers to assist in raising money for this wonderful organisation.
beyondblue is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression and suicide in the community.
Decmil is extremely pleased to have entered into a corporate friendship with beyondblue, and we enjoy actively fundraising that helps to raise awareness and understanding of mental illness, empowers people to seek help, and supports their recovery, management and resilience.
