We're committed to supporting our members in the hard work they do every day so that when the time comes, they can retire well. That's why we choose partners who make a positive, long-term difference for our members and our community.

Health

With so many members working in healthcare professions, we're proud to partner with organisations dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of others.

Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) (Qld Section)

The RFDS (Qld Section) take care of more than 290,000 Australians every year - that's 1 person every 2 minutes.

Our partnership means the Royal Flying Doctors receive training support for their 70 flight nurses who provide essential emergency and primary healthcare services across Queensland, including in our rural and remote communities.

Juiced TV

Juiced TV provides sick kids and their families with a fun distraction during their time in hospital, with an Australian-first TV show, mobile app, podcast, and they even answer wishes outside of the hospital.

By sponsoring the Super Hero awards, we recognise the unsung hospital staff heroes - many of whom are QSuper members - who provide quality emergency and primary care to our members and the wider community.

Education

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

Showcase Awards

We partner with the Department of Education awards that recognise outstanding school leaders and senior-year level teachers – many of whom are QSuper members.

Premier's Reading Challenge

We partner with the Premier's Reading Challenge, which provides book voucher prizes for kids to win and author visits for schools to win.

Creative Generations - State Schools Onstage

With creativity being one of the most in-demand skills for job roles, QSuper is proud to work with educators to nurture creative expression, thinking and problem solving, and our partnership helps support student performers to engage with and learn from industry mentors.

Freedom from domestic and family violence (DFV)

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

That's why we support organisations that make a positive difference both in preventing DFV and in improving the lives and futures of people affected by it.

In our own workplace, we offer 10 days of domestic violence leave, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for free counselling and legal advice, workplace training about DFV, and 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 has been funding a full-time crisis counsellor for 4,000 calls per year since 2016, as well as workplace training workshops.

DVConnect also helps with leaving a DFV situation, with emergency transport and accommodation for people and pets, Bella’s Sanctuary medium-term safe house, QLD Sexual Assault Helpline, and 1800RESPECT trauma counselling.

Darkness to Daylight

We participate and volunteer every year in the Darkness to Daylight Challenge, a 110km run or walk that represents 110 lives lost in Australia every year due to DFV.

RizeUp

RizeUp Australia supports families accessing DFV services, providing emergency needs, furniture and decor for safe houses, and clothing for kids starting at a new school.

We support RizeUp by corporate volunteering with the Homes Program and gathering donations for the Christmas Gift Appeal and Easter Appeal.

Public advocacy

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

Women's wellbeing

We advocate for the financial and social wellbeing of women, who make up over two-thirds of our membership.

Women of the World

We support the Women of the World (WOW) annual festival, which celebrates women’s achievements and takes a frank look at the obstacles that can prevent women and girls from reaching their full financial and social wellbeing potential.

Find out more or book a spot at the next WOW event.

She's on Q

We created She's on Q because we know females are statistically less likely to achieve financial security in retirement due to a range of barriers.

The She’s on Q community gives women access to practical financial skills, resources and real-world ideas.

  • She's on Q events: Quarterly events designed to be inspiring, thought-provoking, and network-building. Watch recordings of our past events on our YouTube channel, or sign up for our next event.
  • She’s on Q digital hub: Tools and resources to help women become more confident in managing their finances

Indigenous Australians

We are committed to increasing the financial wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

First Nations Foundation

We are an Impact Partner with First Nations Foundation's IndigenousSuper.com.au website, designed by Indigenous people for Indigenous people to make the most of their super.

We also reconnected members with millions of dollars in super through the foundation's Big Super Day Out events, and we look forward to being able to participate again in the future.

Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (QIYLP)

We volunteer each year with the QIYLP, where we meet some of the state's rising stars aged 18-25 years to help them with their leadership and networking skills and build their capacity to plan and drive change in their local communities.

We were also on the panel of reviewers for the grant applications for QIYLP participants in 2021.
