A space to make change
The Property Industry Foundation is incredibly excited to welcome Unispace as a Platinum Donor and a new member of our fantastic property and construction community. Unispace is a company that is engrained in family values, which became evident when seeing their responses to our questions about joining our awesome community. Kevin McCabe who heads Operations and Director of APAC when questioned on our partnership answered.
1. Why support a cause around youth homelessness?
Unispace works in every city across Australia and as we attend our offices and our project sites our staff see the sad reality of youth homelessness on a daily basis. 44,000 youths don’t have a place to call home every night and behind these figures are individual stories of young people who need a second chance. As an organisation, we look forward to making an impact.
2. What connected you to the Property Industry Foundation?
Unispace started as a family business back in 2010 and our family values have drawn us to the Property Industry Foundation. We hope to help the homeless youth across our country through the Foundation, by providing young individuals with stability and an opportunity to take control of their future. We are eager to work closely with the Foundation, supporting with our expertise, our fundraising efforts and the time of our people.
3. What event, fundraiser or activity have you worked with the Foundation on?
We have participated in the regatta which was a great opportunity to raise funds and meet fellow Foundation members but we are most looking forward to Hard Hat Day. Hard Hat Day is turning out to be a significant event in Unispace’s calendar, where we have lots of great fundraising activities happening right across the country in all of our studios and construction sites.
4. How are you planning to partner with the Property Industry Foundation?
We are most looking forward to being part of a team that will help coordinate a project, actively participate in the worker bees and ensure the Foundation has every opportunity to leverage our collective supply chain. Most recently, Unispace has been working with the Boys and Girls Brigade, Surry Hills to renovate their facilities to better suit the needs of the youth that visit the space.
The Property Industry Foundation values partnerships with companies like Unispace that understands that building homes for homeless youth isn’t a game of numbers, each person we help has their own story and circumstance that we strive to help in our actions and with our relationships.
Thank you Unispace for being part of our cause.
