PDS CARE

Recognising that we have an impact on the world around us, a group of interested employees run a social responsibility program we call PDS Care.

Our program includes National support for R U OK? Day and several State-based initiatives, run by a group of interested employees for all staff participation.

R U OK Day is a national day of action dedicated to reminding everyone to ask, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs

This is a major event in our PDS Care calendar. In addition to a social check-in with colleagues, we sponsor major events raising awareness with clients and other external stakeholders.

Clean Up Australia Day encourages communities, schools and businesses to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment.

PDS Group encourages all employees to get together and donate their time by cleaning up the local area near their office.

The Biggest Morning Tea is the Cancer Council’s most popular fundraising event, raising vital funds for people affected by cancer.

This is where PDS Group’s fabulous bakers (and their generous relatives!) wow us with their treats.  We come together in each office, for a cuppa and something to eat together, collecting donations to help fund Cancer Council’s important work.

National Tree Day is Australia’s largest tree-planting and nature care event, encouraging people to do something positive for the local environment and community.

All employees are encouraged to take an hour or two with their families and friends to join (check typo) a tree-planting site near their office and get their hands dirty.

Movember is tackling men’s health issues, as men die on average 6 years earlier than women for reasons that are largely preventable.

Each year in November, we encourage our team members to Grow a Mo, and Save a Bro – or, to sponsor someone who is brave enough to do so!

OUR PDS CARE TEAM

PDS Group have a team of staff across all of our offices who volunteer to assist with the coordination and communication of all  National PDS Care Events. We are proud of the work they do, ensuring that PDS Group are continually reminded of our social responsibility.
