For the last decade Geocon has worked closely with Menslink to enrich the lives of young men living in Canberra.
For nearly twenty years, Menslink has been helping young guys aged 10-25 make better choices and engage positively with society, because young men matter to their families, our community and our future.
They support them through our free counselling, mentoring and education programs, which have helped thousands of young guys get through tough or lonely times with the least amount of harm to themselves and those around them.
They also help young guys build capacity, not dependency; developing and building on their resilience and empathy and helping them become the great adult men they want to be.
“We’re proud to be a Geocon’s Principal Charity Partner- together we’re building better communities: Geocon by building innovative residential apartments and hotels; Menslink by building great adult men of the future” says CEO Martin Fisk.
For 10 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities ACT and South East NSW have supported families from across our region who need to care for their seriously ill child in hospital through their House and Family Room. In recent years, with the on-going generous support of our partners, sponsors and donors like Geocon, we have been able to extend that support to offer a week of re-connection to eligible families at our tranquil Family Retreat located at Rosedale, just south of Batemans Bay.
With partners like Geocon, we continue to provide the care and support families in need. Annually, we support over 1,200 families across our Programs and know without this support, we could not have the impact we do.
“Our recent, unexpected, stay allowed our family to be together whilst our daughter was unwell and admitted for high dependency care. So grateful for the clean and quiet room, the laundry, cooking facilities and just meeting other families in similar situations.” The Mattiske Family
“We cannot express enough how grateful we are for providing us with comfort and care during our journey” The Bode Family
Geocon has been working with OzHarvest Canberra for many years.
Founded by Ronni Kahn AO in 2004 after noticing the huge volume of food going to waste, OzHarvest quickly grew to become Australia’s leading food rescue organisation. Food is at their core, saving surplus food from ending up in landfill and delivering it to charities that help feed people in need.
OzHarvest Canberra started rescuing food in 2008. With two yellow vans, the team rescues over 7,000 kgs of surplus food, delivering nearly 22,000 meals every week to people in need throughout the region.
In 2022 GEOCON proudly donated a Ford Ranger to the team to assist with transport and logistics for their Canberra Manager.
Canberra Ocean Racing Club (CORC) was established in 1979, and its purpose is to allow Canberra people to undertake coastal and offshore cruising, and to compete in the occasional ocean race. Geocon has committed to support CORC through the 2021-2022 Ocean Racing series, with the ultimate goal line honours at the 2022 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.
Geocon has partnered with Canberra’s most successful professional sports team the UC Capitals since the 2021 WNBL season. The Capitals are our city’s most successful national sports team. They’re trailblazers locally and nationally, resetting expectations in the delivery and engagement with women’s sport.
