Spirit of Community
The Australian Made, Australian Grown logo is administered by Australian Made Campaign Limited (AMCL); a not-for-profit public company established in 1999 by the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the network of state and territory chambers of commerce, with the cooperation of the Federal Government.
AMCL is not a government body and does not receive government funding for its core operations, which are licensing companies to use the logo and promoting Australian products both in Australia and overseas.
Qantas is proud to carry the Australian Made logo.
Right now, over 1 million Australian adults have depression and 2 million are experiencing anxiety. On average, 8 people take their lives every day in Australia. Depression, anxiety and suicide affects all of us - so beyondblue is equipping everyone in Australia with the knowledge and skills to protect their own mental health. They're giving people the confidence to support those around them, and making anxiety, depression and suicide part of everyday conversations. And as well as tackling stigma, prejudice and discrimination, beyondblue is breaking down the barriers that prevent people from speaking up and reaching out. beyondblue is here for everyone in Australia - at work, home, school, university, online, and in communities across the country.

Royal Far West
Royal Far West (RFW) is a 92-year-old independent, charitable organisation that is dedicated to the care of rural children and their families so they can lead happy, healthy and productive lives. They exist to enable country kids to access the specialist health and wellbeing care they need to realise their full potential.
They are specialists in diagnosing and resolving health and developmental issues in children. Their Paediatric Development Program provides a unique multi-disciplinary integrated service to improve child health and developmental outcomes through early intervention, education and prevention at our site in Manly.
Their innovative Telecare programs deliver online therapy to children in isolated and remote locations, where there are workforce shortages or a complete lack of services. Their community programs see them working directly in rural and remote communities to help thousands of children and families in need.
Since 2014 RFW has serviced, via its technology‐enabled capability, more than 300 children from 11 schools in the Gladstone area. These services have been funded and delivered in partnership with the Gladstone Foundation, schools and local service providers to overcome local workforce shortages.
Early in 2016 a further 60 children in critical need of developmental health services were identified, stretching capacity.
Thanks to the generous support of the Qantas Foundation, at least 20 of those children will receive RFW Telecare services by the end of December 2016 to address their developmental needs through speech pathology and sensory and fine / gross motor skill assessments.
