The essential characteristic of social responsibility is the willingness of an organisation to incorporate social and environmental considerations in its decision making and be accountable for all impacts of its decisions and activities on society and the environment. This implies both transparent and ethical behaviour that contributes to sustainable development, is in compliance with applicable law and is consistent with international norms of behaviour. It also implies that social responsibility is integral throughout the organisation, is practised in its relationships and takes into account the interests of stakeholders. *

Our Core Social Responsibility Focus
Our core focus at Learning Partnerships, is supporting members of our community, in particular our youth, who have been disadvantaged by mental health, domestic violence, circumstance or distance to achieve their purpose and potential.
We understand that these challenges can also have a compounding effect on personal development and career opportunities. We believe in actively supporting community groups and initiatives with similar values, and our volunteer policy means our staff can take regular time off to get involved.
Our areas of support include:
Learn it Townsville – An amazing local initiative to help disadvantaged youths obtain their drivers licence. Without resources and support it can be very difficult for youth to obtain their drivers licence which in turn affects their life and career prospects. We encourage you to volunteer your time or your business resources to help Learn IT keep providing this valuable support to the community at the grass roots.
