To support Ford's focus on leadership and teamwork, using community service as a tool, Ford developed the Volunteering Corps, providing employees with the opportunity to apply for 16 hours of paid leave annually to participate in volunteering projects.

The company is set to become the largest auto employer in the nation after 2017  and this program provides great opportunities for our employees to help charities supported by Ford Australia and not-for-profit organisations located around Ford offices in Geelong, Richmond and Campbellfield.

The Ford Volunteer Corps is on the job year-round, but in September we raise the bar even higher with Ford’s Global Month of Caring.  Through this month, Ford employees on six continents join together to power a new engine of support to benefit people in local communities.   

In 2016, Ford Australia employees participated in 11 projects during the Global Month of Caring. Employees participated in a diverse range of projects which included preparing meals for Fareshare, restoring a three-masted schooner as part of our ongoing support of the Alma Doepel Project and helping staff at the Jirralingha Koala Wildlife Sanctuary located in Barwon Heads.

Volunteering assists in strengthening the communities in which we live and work and is seen as an extension of the workplace giving schemes that employees participate in.
