COVID-19 Community Partners

Our Support

To support the health and wellbeing of communities throughout Australia and New Zealand during COVID-19, we've donated $1.5 million to charitable initiatives to provide both immediate and ongoing support in the recovery from the pandemic.


Clearhead has expanded their online platform to include a secure, online telehealth service, which will enable therapists and support groups to continue to deliver crucial mental health services to more Kiwis across the country, even under COVID-19 restrictions.

Lifeline Aotearoa

Our funding support enabled Lifeline Aotearoa to provide an extra 2,300 hours of crisis support and additional counsellor training to support the mental health of Kiwis during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lifeline Australia

To meet the increase in demand during the COVID-19 pandemic and provide greater support to young people and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, Lifeline expanded their crisis text-based service, Lifeline Text.

NSW Rural Doctors Network

Rural Doctors Network have developed wellbeing resources for health professionals living in remote and rural communities, to ensure they’re prioritising their health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.


To help international students navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, batyr offered both online and in-person mental health education programs and speaker training workshops to help students keep on top of their health and wellbeing.
