At the Heart of What We Do

 

Confoil has been a proudly Australian owned and operated family business for over 50 years, and our ties to the community in which we operate are strong. To us, healthy employees, a healthy environment and healthy communities are all interrelated and vital to our collective sustainable future. Confoil actively support a broad range of not for profit organisations who’s values are aligned with our own. Causes that are of particular importance to us are tackling waste issues and sustainability, food insecurity in our community and beyond, environmental protection, mental wellbeing, cancer education and research, and human rights.

 

Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Community

 

Here at Confoil, the health and well-being of our employees is of paramount importance. We are extremely proud to have been recognised by the Victorian State Government’s Healthier Workplaces Achievement Program for creating a workplace that supports safety at work, promotes a physically active environment and encourages healthy eating choices. The Achievement Program is based on the World Health Organization model for health promoting schools and healthy workplaces. It was developed in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Education and Training and aligns with the Victorian Health and Wellbeing Plan and Outcomes Framework.

Healthy workplaces and mental health go hand in hand, and it is something we want to talk about and remove stigma from. Beyond Blue aims to equip everyone in Australia with the knowledge and skills they need to protect their own mental health. Confoil are proud to support Beyond Blue by holding several fundraisers per year, as well as support their educational initiatives in our workplace.

For many years Confoil has supported the amazing work of the Cancer Council through various fundraising activities throughout the year, including Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. We are passionate about supporting cancer research, with the Cancer Council being one of our staff selected charities.

R U OK? Day is a national day of action in September dedicated to reminding everyone to ask the question, “Are you OK?” and to remember every day of the year to support people who may be struggling with life’s ups and downs. Confoil is a proud fundraising supporter of R U Ok? Day as well as supporting their messages in our workplace.

Every year, during the month of September Confoil host a staff fundraising event to support Footy Colours Day. Footy Colours Day raises much needed funds for Australian children who are battling cancer and was created by the Fight Cancer Foundation who began their not for profit organization in 1995.

Each June, Confoil participates in Men’s Health Week. An educational initiative that aims to shine a light on the particular health issues unique to men and boys in our communities and raise the profile of men’s health. It encourages greater self-awareness, a priority on health and early detection of disease, overall wellbeing and open conversations.

Every year at Christmas time, Melbourne local Joanna combines her passion for baking with her passion for fundraising, baking the most incredible Christmas cakes with 100% of profits going to the Cancer Council. Confoil is proud to support Joanna and the Cancer Council through donating our festive Panettone baking moulds.
