Gosnells backs Buddy Bench

Our ethos of helping local people with the resources they need to make their communities strong, sustainable and prosperous prompted us to brainstorm.

And that brainstorm, focussed on how we can promote healthy relationships within local schools led us to the Buddy Bench project.

The school playground can be a lonely place. Not in our community though because we have funded Buddy Benches for local primary schools.

A simple idea that has wonderful results.

Providing a safe place for children to go when they’re sad, upset or lonely.

The Buddy Bench is a safe haven which lets other children know that one of their peers needs a friend.

Gosnells Community Bank® Branch is great at banking.

We’re also great at helping our community be the best it can and there’s no better example than our involvement in the Buddy Bench project.
