Present a sponsorship opportunity to WorkSafe for an event or activity that supports our objectives. Applications are reviewed four times each year.
WorkSafe's community sponsorship program complements our public awareness campaigns and corporate sponsorship portfolio, providing a tangible link with the community.
Through sponsorship WorkSafe aims to:
raise awareness of, and increase positive regard for, WorkSafe with target audiences
build stronger relationships with the community in support of WorkSafe's role
actively engage with the community to build understanding of, and support for, WorkSafe 2030, and WorkSafe's vision and mission
inform the community and increase knowledge about WorkSafe's strategic messages
WorkSafe's corporate sponsorship portfolio comprises partnerships with AFL Victoria Country, Victorian Country Netball, Melbourne Victory and the Western Bulldogs Football Club.
Due to these existing partnerships, there is limited funding available for sporting clubs and they are discouraged from applying for a community sponsorship.
