BaptistCare launched two pillars of its social sustainability framework: a Human Rights Position Statement and its first Modern Slavery Statement. These Statements reflect the organisation’s commitment to promote and respect human rights and adhere to ethical policies that respect human rights and oppose exploitation.
The one year anniversary since the outbreak of COVID-19 at BaptistCare Dorothy Henderson Lodge (DHL) was marked with a commemorative event, which was also live-streamed for safety. The event remembered the six beloved residents who passed away, and honoured staff, customers, family members and volunteers who persevered tirelessly throughout the outbreak.
BaptistCare turned the “first sod” for a second time at its birthplace Carlingford site, in preparation for its final Social and Affordable Housing Fund development in partnership with the NSW Government, consisting of 162 much-needed homes for seniors and single parents.
BaptistCare received approval for a Development Application from the City of Wagga Wagga to redevelop BaptistCare Caloola Centre. The new design will feature home-like principles, private bathrooms, a new café, and will meet stringent infection control benchmarks.
A team of six BaptistCare employees rode in the Chain Reaction Cycling Event, raising over $100,000 for HopeStreet’s children’s programs. The event covered 1000km from Coffs Harbour to Sydney and was an opportunity to create further awareness and fundraising for our HopeStreet programs.
