The Property Industry's Hard Hat initiative has raised nearly $55,000 for homeless youth so far, with more to coming in through November.

This year, with the Covid-19 restrictions, the activities and events for the Property Industry’s Hard Hat Day were wide and varied. Ranging from online trivia and bingo to face to face BBQs and staff donating an hour of their pay, the companies participating pulled out all the stops this year, holding activities and events when it suited them and their teams.

The Property Industry Foundation would like to thank everyone involved in Hard Hat in 2021. See some of the great initiatives below:

A huge thank you to everyone that has done Hard Hat, is still doing Hard Hat or is a year on year supporter of making the time to get together as an industry in a way that connects us and gives back to homeless young Australians.

Hard Hat is a focal point for the industry through August, but don’t let that stop you from finding the time and ways to host an event with your team that helps us build more rooms for youth in need.
