Caring for the carers of our community

First State Super and the Geelong Cats team up to support the local community

Recognising and supporting the great work that nurses and healthcare workers do for our local community is important to us. That’s why we have entered into this partnership with the Geelong Cats.

We recently teamed up with Jed Bews and Aaron Black to visit the nurses and healthcare workers at the St John of God Geelong Hospital to say thanks for all that they do for us. We've also visited Barwon Health, Epworth Geelong and Karingal St Laurence.

First State Super and the Cats in the community

Chief Executive Officer Michael Dwyer AM said: ‘The majority of our 15,000 members in Geelong, and the surrounding region, work in the health and community services sectors.’

‘It is our responsibility to care for them and their communities and help them to achieve a dignified retirement. This exciting partnership with the Cats is our way of recognising our members’ self-less contribution to the Geelong community. Like us, the Cats are a values-driven organisation, with their members and community at the heart of everything they do, and we look forward to working with them on this great community-based program in 2017.’

Geelong Cats Patron Frank Costa AO said: ‘First State Super will be helping us in our crucial off-field work, recognising and supporting those members of our community who care for all of us.’
‘The Cats are really excited about this program and look forward to working closely with First State Super to bring this partnership to life.’
