PARNTERSHIP WITH UNOTHER

Building Disability Awareness

UnOther works towards building awareness about inclusion and understanding of people with disability. Our partnership sees us donate wheelchairs for their immersion program Beyond the Chair.

The program facilitates abled bodied participants and school students to experience first-hand what it is like to navigate the world with a disability. Mentors of the program who live with disability share their stories and oversee the experiences with the aim for participants to develop a new lens of seeing beyond the physical differences and knowing the person, name and story.

Sponsorship partner with Wheelchair Sports

Changing lives through sport

The courage and commitment required to meet and exceed sporting goals has the power to impact all areas of life. Sport should be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of ability, whether it’s Aussie rules, basketball, racing, rugby, tennis, lawn bowls or para-powerlifting.

As part of our aim to help Australians to keep moving forward and as a proud partner of Wheelchair Sports NSW/ACT, ILS sponsors the wheelchair rugby program. It’s rewarding to support wheelchair athletes who may be just starting out, or representing Australia at an elite level, from juniors to masters.

Workplace Giving Program

Our Community 2

ILS proudly supports many Australian community and charity partners through our Workplace Giving Program. We encourage our ILS employees to use a paid work day each year to participate in a fundraising activity with a charity we support, with all proceeds going to our nominated charities. In 2020, these have included the Australian Red Cross, Youngcare and Save Our Sons. Our customers are likewise part of this giving community, with in-store donation boxes and website point-of-sale donations, they share in supporting our charity partners.
