Whether they're working hard, or enjoying retirement, our members come first. That's why we work with partners who make a positive, long-term difference for them and their communities.

How our partnerships help

Schools and students benefit from award prizes including books, author visits, and more.

4,000 crisis calls per year funded for DVConnect, to help those affected by domestic and family violence.

Key workers recognised for the important work they do in our communities.

Better cardiac facilities for regional communities in Far North Queensland.

Health

Many of our members work in healthcare. So we're proud to partner with organisations dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of others.

QSuper Cardiac Challenge 

QSuper Cardiac Challenge

The QSuper Cardiac Challenge raises money for vital cardiac facilities for regional hospitals in Far North Queensland. It's a yearly cycling event hosted by the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation.

Our partnership means 100% of the money raised go towards these facilities. So patients in regional and rural areas can get the care they need without going to a major city like Brisbane for treatment.

Education

We support the Queensland Department of Education to recognise the work of educators and help increase learning outcomes for students.

Showcase Awards

The Department of Education awards recognise outstanding school leaders and senior-year level teachers – many of whom have a QSuper account.

Premier's Reading Challenge

As part of the Premier's Reading Challenge, our Top 5 Book Challenge aims to improve the reading skills of children and teens. Prizes include book vouchers for school libraries and author visits for schools.

Freedom from domestic and family violence (DFV)

In Australia, 1 in 6 women and 1 in 17 men have experienced partner violence. This includes physical or sexual violence from a current or previous partner they lived with (Australian Bureau of Statistics).

We support organisations that help prevent DFV and improve the lives and futures of people affected by it.

As part of Australian Retirement Trust, we offer our employees:

  • 10 days of domestic violence leave
  • an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for free counselling and legal advice
  • workplace training about DFV.

We also raise awareness during DFV Prevention Month in May.

If you're experiencing domestic or family violence, you can contact:

DVConnect Womensline

(for anyone who identifies as female, including LGBTIQ+)

DVConnect Mensline

(for anyone who identifies as male, including LGBTIQ+)

DVConnect

Our partnership with DVConnect pays for a full-time crisis counsellor for 4,000 calls each year (since 2016), as well as workplace training workshops.

DVConnect also helps people leaving a DFV situation. They have emergency transport and places for people and pets to stay, a medium-term safe house called Bella's Sanctuary, the QLD Sexual Assault Helpline, and 1800RESPECT trauma counselling.

Darkness to Daylight

We take part and volunteer in the Darkness to Daylight Challenge. It's a 110km run or walk that represents 110 lives lost in Australia every year due to DFV.

RizeUp

RizeUp Australia supports families who need DFV services. They provide emergency needs, furniture and decor for safe houses, and clothes for kids starting at a new school.

We've supported RizeUp by gathering donations for their Christmas Gift Appeal and Easter Appeal, and regular Workplace Giving donations from our team.

Public advocacy

We're humbled to be named in Queensland’s first Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) Prevention Honour Roll run by the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women. This celebrates our efforts to raise awareness and support the DFV sector.

We're also an active member of the Queensland Government's corporate roundtable for DFV prevention.

Recognising Australia's heroes

We began as one of Australia’s first public sector funds. Now, and as part of Australian Retirement Trust, we still take care of Queensland Government employees and their families. So we’re proud to recognise Australians who make an extraordinary difference and support our communities.

Australia Day Achievement Awards

Every day, our members working in fire, rescue, and emergency services serve and protect our community. By partnering with these awards, we're proud to recognise the outstanding efforts of the dedicated people of Queensland’s Fire and Emergency Services (QFES).

Premier's Awards for Excellence

The Premier's Awards for Excellence recognise outstanding dedication and improved community programs or initiatives across the Queensland public service. They celebrate those who are creating change for the benefit of others.
