Whilst the year has certainly presented its challenges, DOOLEYS Clubs has continued to remain agile, adapting and overcoming the ongoing hurdles COVID-19 continues to present. DOOLEYS Clubs has always put the safety and well-being of our Members and staff first together with ensuring the needs of our local community are met during this uncertain period.
During 2020-21, DOOLEYS Clubs contributed over $2.2 million in Corporate Social Responsibility activities directly to our local community through ClubGRANTS funding, sponsorships, local projects, charity support, in-kind assistance, and harm minimisation initiatives.
DOOLEYS Corporate Social Responsibility includes:
- Direct Community Contributions – including ClubGRANTS, Harm Minimisation, Sponsorships, Donations, and general Community Expenditure.
- Governance and Sustainability Expenditure – including Environmental Sustainability, Work Health & Safety, and Corporate Governance.
We are pleased to share with our members and broader community the positive outcomes we have achieved over the last year – results we only hope to continue to build upon in 2022.
We are also honoured to announce that DOOLEYS were awarded the winner of the 2021 Clubs and Community Awards Clubs in Collaboration award, alongside other contributing Western Sydney Clubs in support of Learning Links. From March 2019 to date, a total of 27 Western Sydney Clubs have collectively contributed nearly $1M dollars ($970,000) to Learning Links through ClubGRANTS. During this time, these life-changing funds have reached over twenty Western Sydney schools and helped support children who are most at risk of falling behind.
In what has undoubtedly been another unprecedented year, we congratulate all those working within the community sector who have adapted with rapid changes in service delivery whilst still continuing to operate under intense pressure.
On behalf of the DOOLEYS Board of Directors, Management and Staff, we would also like to thank our local healthcare heroes, emergency service personnel and all who reside on the frontline within the community sector. Thank you for the work that you do in keeping our community safe.
