headspace and Viva Energy Australia announce a new three year corporate partnership

Viva Energy Australia’s first national community support strategy – titled Jigsaw – was launched today and features a national partnership with headspace which is geared towards creating and supporting role models in communities across Australia.
Through Viva Energy Australia’s support, a number of headspace centres in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria will be creating opportunities for 12-25 year olds to become role models and mental health advocates in their local communities.
Viva Energy CEO, Mr. Scott Wyatt, said he was proud to be launching a program that facilitates positive social change, encourages support from employees and aligns with core business practices.
Viva Energy’s $600,000 investment over three years, will directly support ‘Mental Health Role Models’ and enable up to 70 members of headspace Youth Reference Groups from Geelong / Sunshine (VIC), Parramatta (NSW) and Nundah (QLD) to be up-skilled through formal training in a range of disciplines to help them share their stories locally, raise awareness of headspace and encourage help seeking.
In addition to supporting the work of four local Youth Reference Groups, Viva Energy Australia will support the headspace Youth National Reference Group (hY NRG).
