Australian Red Cross

We are incredibly appreciative of the support from Origin staff who worked with us to deliver a new service, COVID Connect which enabled us to connect with thousands of people negatively impacted by Covid-19. Your contribution enabled us to make over 8,500 calls to support vulnerable people who were battling social isolation and loneliness. Origin volunteers offered people the opportunity to have a connection with their community and reduced their stress by giving them a normal pattern of social interaction. Together, we lead with compassion, humanity and courage. Our work together in COVID Connect called for leadership and adaptation and the enthusiasm and commitment from Origin staff meant that we were able to make a real difference in the lives of so many Australians when they really needed it. It was a privilege to share this humanitarian journey with the team at Origin.
