I have always believed in a personal sense of responsibility. Responsibility to myself, my family, my friends and the community.
As a company the focus might have changed but the core values are the same. We believe in a responsibility to our customers, suppliers and a responsibility to support the community.
It is because of these values that I have personally supported Brisbane Youth Service for many years now and have committed to supporting them as a company also. Like any business we engage external expertise to handle our legal, plumbing and marketing needs. We support Brisbane Youth Service because they have been helping homeless youth in and around Brisbane since 1977 and understand the struggles that they go through every day.
On any given night in Queensland, there are 4,454 young people (aged 12-24) facing homelessness. The total homelessness rate rose 68% in Brisbane’s Inner City in the five years to 2016 – main factors being poverty, domestic violence and housing affordability. (2016 Census) If we could get 4,000 companies to support Brisbane Youth Service we could make a difference to thousands of young lives.
Alexilum is committed to donating $5 to Brisbane Youth Service for every Activity Statement we lodge on behalf of our clients.
Brisbane Youth Service have written an article about our program which you can read here.
I hope you will choose to support Brisbane Youth Services so we can all make a difference to our community.
