Almost half of Indigenous Australians suffer severe financial stress and only one in 10 report they are financially secure, according to a study conducted by First Nations Foundation.
This NAIDOC Week (4-11 July 2021) – the annual event celebrating the achievements and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people – we continue to be committed to empowering First Nations people with access to education, support and resources to improve their financial wellbeing.
Heal Country! is the theme of this year’s NAIDOC Week, a call for Australians to take action to protect our nation’s cultural heritage and land.
QSuper’s commitment to Indigenous people extends throughout our organisation, including supporting the next generation of Indigenous leaders through the Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program, which helps mentor young Indigenous and Torres Strait people to gain access to forums to enact change.
Our team enjoy supporting the program each year as well as hearing inspiring stories from participants who, at a young age, are already doing so much to champion and create change in their communities.
One of last year’s QSuper volunteers, Osei Wiafe, said it was a privilege to support the program.
"It’s a great avenue to share ideas and there is so much to learn from the passion of these young people," Mr Wiafe said.
"Their commitment and resolve is an inspiration to us all."
QSuper recognises we can only do so much on our own, which is why we partner with organisations like the First Nations Foundation (FNF).
We also continue to sponsor the Big Super Day Out, a FNF initiative, allowing us to help promote financial security for some members in some of Queensland’s most remote communities.
QSuper acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands which make up Queensland and recognise that this land has always been a place of gathering, learning and community.
As one of Australia’s largest and oldest super funds, QSuper aims to help members achieve financial security, including those in our most vulnerable communities.
