Great Southern Rail in the community
At Great Southern Rail we are committed to helping the Outback communities through which our trains travel to survive and flourish. Our two Charity Partners, The Royal Flying Doctor Service and the Returned Services League of Australia, both provide essential services and support for our fellow Australians and we are proud of our commitment to these causes.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service provides lifesaving medical assistance and essential health services to regional and remote communities across Australia through their network of Flying Doctors.
The Returned Services League of Australia provides welfare and financial assistance to veterans and ex-service men and women across Australia while also promoting advocacy and representation, commemoration and remembrance for the Australian Defence Force.
Great Southern Rail also partners with OzHarvest, Australia’s only food rescue organisation, through the donation of surplus food from the trains to be distributed to charities across Adelaide. In 2016 so far, Great Southern Rail has donated the equivalent of 10,056 meals supporting more than 115 charities.
Great Southern Rail receive many requests from charities and community groups for financial support and donations and we regret that we are unable to provide assistance to causes other than those of our preferred Charity Partners.
