Help for people in need
Our corporate social responsibility has traditionally involved assistance for those in need and efforts to improve social conditions in all the countries in which we are active.
Important tools of our social responsibility include donations and support for long-term projects according to the principle "helping people to help themselves." Here we cooperate closely with both government institutions and non-governmental organisations.
Mission Australia is a non‐denominational Christian community service organisation that has been helping people to regain their independence for over 155 years.
Independence is something we all strive for, but life rarely turns out as planned. We’ve learnt the reasons behind a loss of independence and the paths to getting it back are different for everyone.
This informs how we work to reduce homelessness and strengthen communities across
Australia, through homelessness initiatives and affordable housing, early learning and youth services, family support, and employment and skills development.
Our nationwide team of over 3,500 staff applies different approaches, inspired by Christian values. We are joined by government, our corporate partners and everyday Australians who provide generous support.
Together, we stand with Australians in need until they can stand for themselves.
Toby Hall, CEO, Mission Australia explains, “The support we receive from companies like Bayer and their staff is absolutely invaluable to Mission Australia in continuing its work with Australians in need.”

The Kids’ Cancer Project
Bayer Australia is proud to support The Kids’ Cancer Project.
The Kids’ Cancer Project believes all kids with cancer matter and are dedicated to achieving one hundred percent survival for children with cancer while minimising or eradicating the harmful impact of treatment.
The Kids’ Cancer Project identifies and selects scientists and allocate community entrusted funds to research projects. They collaborate with clinicians, researchers, families, government and the community to raise awareness and funds to invest in childhood cancer research.
We’re inspired by children with cancer and their families and have taken a patient-family centric approach to tackling the issues they bravely face.
Our independence allows us to find and fund research that puts kids first and our Research Advisory Committee provides expertise in the selection of projects and our impact.
“We are very excited to have Bayer as a corporate partner and we look forward to working together to support cutting edge scientific research to give children with cancer a better life” said Col Reynolds, CEO of The Kids’ Cancer Project.

Heart of Australia
Bayer is proud to support Heart of Australia, an initiative providing front-line specialist medical services to regional, rural and remote area communities across Queensland, with a customised road train – a specialist medical clinic-on-wheels.
The Heart of Australia truck has travelled more than 72,000km in its first year on the road, covering an area of more than 450,000 square kilometres.
Heart of Australia is breaking the grip of distance that denies rural and remote-area Australians access to services when and where they are needed most.
