About the Project


The Give Where You Live Foundation (GWYLF) addresses one of the most complex and entrenched social issues in our community– disadvantage.

Since 1954, GWYLF has been bringing together individual community donors, corporate supporters, and service delivery community partners to help achieve its mission. As such, GWYLF is a founding partner of the GROW (G21 Region Opportunities for Work) initiative, which has offered direct insights into the complex issues around mental health and inclusivity in the workplace.

The GWYLF Learning Network was funded by WorkSafe in 2019, and involves 18 local small/medium businesses and service organisations, across industry sectors in the G21 region. The Learning Network has embarked on a comprehensive co-design process, joining with subject matter experts and based on current evidence, to develop interventions which support inclusive and mentally healthy workplace environments for young people.

The Work Care Factor digital resource is an outcome of this co-design process, in order to raise awareness about, and support for, the creation of psychologically safe places for young employees within small/medium business workplaces in the G21 region. This is a tool to help identify workplace problems, start conversations about the emotional health and wellbeing of young people in the workplace, and find practical resources to implement change.
