LJ Hooker supports young people with latest initiative

LJ Hooker has marked an official partnership with headspace as part of its continued efforts to support Australia’s youth.

The network has confirmed headspace as the LJ Hooker Foundation’s third national charity beneficiary for 2021. As part of the partnership, LJ Hooker will help provide mental health support for young people.

The Foundation is the charitable arm of the LJ Hooker network, and in FY20 donated $208,000 to help those in need, including charities Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis, Share the Dignity and the Australian Red Cross. To date, the Foundation has raised more than $8.3 million, a statement from the group confirmed.

Commenting on the arm, LJ Hooker Foundation spokeswoman Sarah Dickson said, through the Foundation, local offices can engage in their communities and boost their social impact, which was especially important during these unprecedented times.

“We’re pleased to be supporting headspace who provide tailored and holistic mental health care to 12- to 25-year-olds through more than 115 headspace centres nationally and online resources,” she said.

“This partnership is well aligned to our LJ Hooker values of putting people first and resonates with our network, particularly now as the country faces multiple challenges from the aftermath of the bushfires to COVID-19 and a challenging economy.

“Supporting the LJ Hooker Foundation gives the real estate network greater purpose beyond the day-to-day, while simultaneously providing much-needed funds for those in need.”

headspace CEO Jason Trethowan welcomed the support of LJ Hooker and its foundation, saying the organisation is thrilled to be partnering with the network on this important cause.

“More than 75 per cent of mental health issues develop before a person turns 25, which is why early intervention is critical. Through our headspace centres and our online and phone counselling services, young people are provided with the help and support they need to get through tough times and get back on track,” Mr Trethowan said.

“Young people are at the centre of everything we do, and they have an active role in designing, developing and evaluating our services.

“Through our partnership, LJ Hooker Foundation can help us to co-create positive content relevant to young people that will help them navigate challenging issues such as housing.”
