Westpac and Mission Australia have shared a banking relationship that dates back to the 1800s and in recent years have formed a community partnership.
Mission Australia empowers individuals to regain control of their lives and, in turn, help improve and strengthen entire communities. Their main focus is providing support for disadvantaged families and children, young people, the homeless and those looking for work.
Westpac Institutional Bank and Mission Australia are working in partnership to support community initiatives that address homelessness and deliver more affordable housing across Australia.
In 2012 the construction of the Kingswood MA Centre was completed. In 2014, Westpac Institutional Bank announced a $1.305 million, three year sponsorship deal, to support Mission Australia's Missionbeat service.
Many Westpac employees are passionate about Mission Australia with hundreds of employees raising funds and volunteering their time and skills.
