We think differently so you do disasters differently
Our C2C Disaster Giving solutions will enable your business to effectively support communities in the before, during and/or after stages of existing and future all-hazard disasters.
We achieve this together by:
- Embedding authentic & transparent disaster giving
- Aligning disaster giving to existing CSR philosophies
- Building internal knowledge of best practice support
- Empowering your team to effectively activate
Given the future era of extreme disasters ahead, ad-hoc and uneducated donations will not position your business to effectively benefit from goodwill.
The negative outcomes from giving gone wrong can affect an organisation’s reputation and bottom line, and the community it wants to help.
Ask us about our Disaster Giving Activation Advice or 10-step Strategic Action Plan.
While there is much global research to support the importance of building community connections in the before stages of any disasters, the focus and funding towards building social capital in Australia is minimal.
Our C2C Community Collaborations program is a place-based (in-person or virtual) initiative with a primary focus of building resilient and thriving communities through collaborative education and engagement.
A model of ‘pay to participate’ and ‘paid to participate’ this innovative solution puts focus on:
Given the future era of natural and unnatural disasters to be faced by our communities, there is great benefit in businesses, government and communities investing resilience-led solutions.
Ask us how you can participate in building resilient communities through Community Collaborations.
Australian communities face a future of more frequent, more destructive, compounding natural and unnatural disasters than they have experienced before.
This will put greater strain on the existing systems, resources and budgets currently activated across all levels of Australian governments.
The private sector offers to government capabilities such as:
- Goods & services
- Skilled talent
- Research & innovation
- Efficient systems& technologies
- Connectivity to customers & consumers
- Strategic planning & leadership
- Corporate social responsibility goodwill
Our Public-Private Partnerships model builds relationships between business, industry associations and government to deliver community resilience-led outcomes.
Ask us how your organisation can strengthen its Public-Private Partnerships.

Help a Small Biz
When disaster strikes, small businesses are often the forgotten group missing out on funding, grants and meaningful assistance from charities and governments.
Research states 40% of small businesses don’t trade after a major disaster, with 80% closed two years after. Imagine the consequences of your town losing 80% of its businesses and workforce.
Help a Small Biz is an online solution to match the needs of businesses directly and indirectly impacted by disasters in Australia with the capabilities of businesses able to help.
Typical examples of small business needs:
- Foot traffic
- Social media
