Charitable Foundation

Charitable Foundation

The HIA Charitable Foundation (HIACF) was founded in 2012 to improve health and welfare outcomes, homelessness, and tackle mental health in our industry.

In particular, the Foundation has focused on supporting those who suffer from mesothelioma – an asbestos-related illness that is caused by inhaling asbestos fibres and educating our industry of the danger of handling asbestos containing materials.

In partnership with Beyond Blue, we are committed to the mental health issues that affect one in four people in the residential construction industry. Our industry can be unpredictable, with extreme highs and lows. So it is not surprising there is a high incidence of anxiety, depression, substance abuse and when left unsupported – suicide.

Make a donation

To date, the Foundation has donated over $1 Million to charities providing much-needed funds for specific research into mesothelioma, shelter for the homeless, and funding into mental health research and improvement.

Your support helps to fund much needed research into the health and wellbeing of those involved in the residential building industry through grant opportunities to best practice research organisations.
