Scentre Group is committed to serving the needs of the community in which it operates. The company’s approach to corporate responsibility involves actively supporting hundreds of community initiatives through its shopping centres. While the programs for each local area and country may vary, at the heart of Scentre Group’s community efforts is helping children to develop and grow. This is done through philanthropic donations, fundraising, providing space in centres for community activities and events, working with local schools, and partnering with local charities to help raise both funds and awareness.

  • Australia

    The Scentre Group Community Program is focused on providing support to children living with a disability and their families. Through shopping centres across the country and divisions in Head Office, Scentre Group partners with over 30 children’s charities to deliver much needed therapy, equipment, respite services, and early intervention programs to children and their families. GiveAbility is a major initiative of the program to raise funds and awareness for these children’s charities. Since 2008, over $5m has been given to charities across Australia through the Scentre Group/Westfield Community Program.

  • New Zealand

    Scentre Group centres in New Zealand support multiple local community and charity groups. The primary focus of these efforts is to make a positive and sustainable contribution to the health and welfare of New Zealand children, particularly those who are disadvantaged or living with disabilities. This is accomplished by providing funding, volunteering, and offering space in our Westfield centres for local fund raising events. In addition to helping local community members, Scentre Group has also been involved in Project Twin Streams, a West Auckland environmental restoration program.
