To reflect our commitment to social justice, we contribute a social dividend which sees any profit reinvested into growing and expanding services and initiatives, including our dedicated research and advocacy agenda to represent all Victorians in generating better services and opportunities as they age, which in turn benefits all the clients and employees in our communities.
