Corporate citizenship & social responsibility

Teachers Health Fund regularly participates in both local and national community events including:

Business Clean Up Australia Day

Teachers Health Fund staff in Surry Hills regularly joins businesses across Australia who clean up their offices or go out into the local community to dispose of rubbish and recycle where possible.

Earth Hour

Teachers Health Fund participates in Earth Hour in all of our offices across Australia – Surry Hills, Parramatta, Hamilton and Melbourne. As well as ensuring that all lights and electrical items are switched off for that one hour, we pride ourselves on being environmentally friendly, through educating staff to turn off computers and monitors each night, recycling where possible and the use of sensor lights which switch off automatically when there is no movement.

Charity fundraising

We hold internal fund-raising and awareness events for:

  • Cancer Council including Daffodil Day and the Biggest Morning Tea
  • Prostate cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Melanoma

White Ribbon Day – Violence against women

As an Employer of Choice for Women, Teachers Health Fund marks White Ribbon Day. Last year Teachers Health Fund donated $1 for each staff member who signed the White Ribbon ‘oath’ online. The White Ribbon Campaign encourages Australians to make a difference by swearing an oath never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.

Global Corporate Challenge (GCC)

Teachers Health Fund sponsors employees to participate in the GCC. The GCC is the world’s largest and most exciting corporate health initiative, aiming to increase daily physical activity in its participants.

The rebate applies to hospital, general treatment and ambulance policies. It does not apply to overseas visitors cover. The rebate levels applicable for 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014 are:
