Community Capacity and Resilience
Economic success depends on a region’s ability to attract and retain a talented workforce.  By investing in the quality of place – including community infrastructure, arts and culture, as well as a strong non-profit sector – we help build capacity of communities to ensure resilience of communities and give them a competitive edge in the global economy.

United Way Glenelg is united by the simple idea that people in a community can come together, pool resources, and work collectively to deal with compelling issues in a way that is more powerful than any one individual.
Portland Aluminium and United Way Glenelg have worked in partnership for more than six years. In fact the organisation was established by Portland Aluminium employees who had seen the organisation work so effectively in the Geelong region.

Each year United Way Glenelg raises money for over 35 vital health and human care agencies within the Glenelg region. Thousands of local people have benefited from a United Way funded organisation including children, youth, the elderly, families, people with disabilities and people in crisis.
United Way Glenelg is a voluntary, non-political and non-sectarian organisation.
The money raised and distributed by United Way Glenelg is carefully invested in local programs run by local agencies that provide services of health and human care.  100 per cent of every donation reaches over 35 health and human care organisations, who in turn service the neediest members of our community coming from the areas of aged care and services; family, youth and children’s services; support for people in crisis; disability services and health.
Portland Aluminium currently supports United Way’s fundraising efforts through a substantial corporate donation, along with funding and the use of office space to contribute to the organisation’s administration costs. 
Just as impressively, employee donations through regular payroll deductions contribute close to $30,000 a year.
In addition to the funding, Portland Aluminium employees have recently become involved in United Way’s Loaned Executive Program and are members of the United Way Board and Beneficiary Review Committee.
