For many years, we have donated monies and goods across a wide range of charitable organizations. Each year the requests from charities grow and their dependence upon organizations like ourselves becomes more apparent. The Children’s Charity Nest was introduced to boost our involvement with organizations that focus on worthwhile children’s causes. The Children’s Charity Nest is an excellent way for employees of Baiada as well as the company itself to make a contribution that will make a difference to a child’s life.
As we recognize the importance of supporting community organizations, we have launched a fund where both the company and employees can jointly contribute to a group of nominated charities. The total amount raised by our employees is matched by the contribution made by Baiada. Information on the charities we have selected is listed below.
Lifestart began in 1996 to provide for the needs of the whole family where at least one child has an intellectual disability or developmental delay.

Autism SA's Early Development Program helps pre-school children with autism, which affects their ability to communicate, socialise and which is characterised by repetitive interests and habits.
