As a family business, family values of care,
compassion and help are the principles on which we
operate, and we believe that these principles are at
the core of building sustainable communities both
internally and externally.
We actively engage with and financially support
worthy causes that align with our values.
We believe these causes do admirable work towards building a more sustainable future for communities and elevating the circumstances of people within them. We recognise that our people are contributors to the communities in which they live, and we strive to provide opportunities for them to grow and prosper.
As a family business, family values of care, compassion and help are the principles on which we operate, and we believe that these principles are at the core of building sustainable communities both internally and externally.
Internally, we strive to create and maintain a work environment where everyone has an equal opportunity to grow and prosper. We invest in our people through programs such as our ‘Training Thursday’, a focus session within work hours dedicated to training and development completely funded by FastAid. We are community focused people who often take work time to engage in charitable initiatives in the wider community, and it is this spirit of generosity and thankfulness which the team thrives on. We believe that ‘giving back’ what we can, whether it be our time or financial support to charities give us a sense of purpose and fulfilment.
Externally, our charitable organisation of choice which we financially support is Rapid Relief Team, an organisation inspired by community spirit and the gift of giving, serving people with care and compassion in their time of need. We also financially support PCYC (Police Citizens Youth Clubs NSW), a charity that helps youth to survive and thrive in partnership with NSW Police. As a team we are also excited to participate in Clean Up Australia events, supporting their cause to inspire and empower communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment.
We thrive on a spirit of generosity. As an organisation FastAid is committed to contributing 4% of annual profits directly back into charitable causes. We are excited to be a part of and support causes that are doing their bit towards stronger and more sustainable communities.

Beyond serving firefighters food and refreshments on
the front line, RRT launched two new initiatives (Rapid
Water Systems and Operation Fire Relief) to assist
Australia’s firefighting efforts, and to help families who
lost everything in Australia’s 2019/2020 catastrophic
Rapid Water Systems was designed and engineered to rapidly pump water from previously inaccessible water sources to the fire front, filling four large firetrucks in less than three minutes. This innovative initiative allowed firefighters to spend more time on the front line, and less time finding water sources. Impressively, 4.5 million litres of water pumped in 6 weeks!
Operation Fire Relief was designed to bring fire ravaged communities together, and support families who lost their home to the bushfires by donating a $1,000 Eftpos gift card, RRT Food Boxes, and Cookie the Kookaburra to children affected. 682 families were generously gifted a $1,000 Eftpos gift card.

Clean Up Australia
As a team we are excited to participate in Clean Up
Australia events, supporting their cause to inspire
and empower communities to clean up, fix up and
conserve our environment.
What was started thirty years ago, by an “average Australian bloke” who had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard has now become the nation’s largest community-based environmental event.
Over the past three decades, Clean Up Australia has evolved into an organisation that works with community, government and businesses to provide practical solutions to help us all live more sustainably every day of the year. Today their focus is as much on preventing rubbish entering our environment as it is removing what has already accumulated.
FastAid engages in the annual Business Clean Up Day event where our team takes work time to get involved in a local clean up, whilst also financially supporting Clean Up Australia.
