It has been our experience that employing staff from a variety of backgrounds extends the depth and breadth of our knowledge and expertise. Our dedication to staff diversity was recognized in early 2018 when Southern Design Group was awarded the Australian NESA award for Innovation in Disability Employment for our work with the Royal Society for the blind.
Southern Design Group has partnered with various organisations over the years with the aim to counter our social and environmental impact.
We are continuously improving the environmental impact of our operations in Australia and abroad. Currently we are focusing on the impact of our packaging and in 2019 become a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant.
We have partnered with several Australian and international charities over the years. Recently two notable charities have been World Vision Australia and Asha.
We are proud to partner with World Vision Australia in bringing hope and opportunities to vulnerable children and communities – helping to give children better futures through World Vision Child Sponsorship. We are also supporting solutions to global health challenges and World Vision’s work to deliver sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene solutions in developing communities.
Recently we have partnered with Asha which operates in 91 slums across New Delhi. Asha has been creating change and supporting India’s most disadvantaged communities for more than 30 years. Focusing on healthcare, empowerment, education, financial inclusion and environmental sustainability, Asha’s holistic approach helps to develop communities from the ground-up – creating a more equal, healthy, and empowered community.
Southern Design Group’s 2020 donation to Asha has helped support their program at the Zakhira Slum in West Delhi, a community of over 10,000 people. The program aims to improve the basic health of children aged 0-5. These children are some of the slums most vulnerable and at-risk, with poor nutrition a leading factor. In this effort we are also supporting Asha in combating malnutrition by providing food, vitamins and desperately needed immunizations.
