About

Sustainable Benefits for Local Communities

In March 2014, Clough changed the way it supports local communities by forming a new charitable trust – the Clough Foundation. Overseen by a semi-independent board, the Foundation provides support to organisations, communities or causes that provide sustainable benefits to society. Aligning with Clough’s five-pillar Corporate Social Responsibility program, the Foundation aims to provide sustained benefits to local communities in which Clough operates while reflecting Clough’s principles.

FIVE PILLAR STRATEGY

All decisions made by the Clough Foundation are aligned to Clough’s existing five-pillar Corporate Social Responsibility program which supports charities and communities who represent Clough’s diverse operations.

Stars mentoring programs help create supportive, culturally safe learning environments – providing the support students need to make the most out of their educational experiences. Since Stars began operating programs in the Northern Territory in 2015, they’ve seen remarkable education and health improvements amongst our students – In 2020, an outstanding 98 per cent of their senior Stars students completed Year 12. 

Stars Foundation has programs in WA, NT, QLD and VIC that are tailored to meet the unique needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women with the aim of promoting positive education, employment and life outcomes.

The vision of MATES in Construction WA is to be Australia’s leading industry suicide prevention organisation, focusing on raising awareness, building capacity, and providing help and research. Established in 2008, MATES is a charity that aims to reduce the high level of suicide among Australian construction workers. MATES provides suicide prevention through community development programs on sites, and by supporting workers in need through case management and a 24/7 help line.

MATES was established in response to a major report on suicide (the ‘AISRAP Report’) within the Queensland Commercial Building and Construction Industry. This report found that suicide rates in the industry were higher than the Australian average for men, and that youth suicide within the industry could be as much as 2.38 times more common than among other young Australian men.

The MATES program is based on the simple idea that suicide is everyone’s business. If the building and construction industry in Australia is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of workers and reduce suicide, then it cannot be left to mental health professionals: everyone in the industry must play their part.
