Gow-Gates in the Community
Gow-Gates is committed to working in an ethical and socially responsible manner at all times. To this end, we’re enthusiastic about supporting programs that benefit and sustain the communities in which we work and belong.
Teams and individuals within the Group are active in a wide array of initiatives:
Can Assist provides accommodation, practical support and financial assistance to country people in NSW affected by any type of cancer. A grass-roots, community-based organisation, Can Assist has been helping country families affected by cancer for over 57 years and has 50 branches in country towns across NSW supported by over 2,900 volunteers. Their vision is that every country community, family and individual should have equitable access to cancer care and support services. In 2012 Can Assist provided $1.6 million in financial assistance and helped 2,563 country people receive the cancer treatment they need.
