New Hope is passionate about playing a positive and proactive role in the communities and regions in which we operate. At New Acland, we are proud to support the local community through employment, economic contribution, sponsorship and donations, and community engagement.

At New Hope Group, we believe that giving back is not only our responsibility, it is our privilege. We aim to build strong, sustainable communities, and we do that by listening to them, understanding their needs and partnering them to fulfill these needs.

From flood repair works to aged care services to children's education... We want to do as much as we can for the people we work with.

Community Reference Group

New Hope has established a New Acland Community Reference Group (CRG) as part of an ongoing community engagement process. A transparent and equitable process was used to select representatives from across the region as the foundation members.

The CRG’s role is to provide local insight on key topics, particularly in relation to potential opportunities and impacts presented by the New Acland operation. It is also another avenue for sharing information with the broader community in addition to the Community Information Centre, newsletters and other initiatives. The CRG will operate as an advisory body and outcomes will inform New Hope’s planning and decision-making.
