Community Development

Our community development activities are a key part of our commitment to the Mellon Group community. We are committed to building communities in which all people have social and economic opportunity – through our community development programs.

These programs helps us to develop partnerships with local community organisations, and gives us the opportunity to support local art and culture, education, enterprise and job creation, environment, social and community development, and health initiatives.

Through partnerships with educational institutions, government agencies and nonprofits, we provide capital and expertise to produce lasting social and economic benefits, such as affordable housing, small business support and community services.

The partnerships are an effective way of supporting community groups to achieve milestones over a two or three-year period, whether that be getting a new Indigenous training initiative off the ground, building a new, state-of-the-art healthcare facility, or purchasing equipment and employing staff to further develop an environmental protection project. We work closely with our partners to ensure they are receiving the support they need to make a real difference in their communities.
