Community Engagement

The Hopkins Group is proud to support the community in a number of ways.

Our founder, John Hopkins, is an ambassador for beyondblue. beyondblue’s work is focused on ensuring that the Australian community understands depression and anxiety, empowering all Australians, at any life-stage, to seek help. John understands on a personal level the compelling impact that depression, anxiety and consequential substance abuse has on individuals and our community generally. An accomplished public speaker, John is determined to make a difference and regularly presents to various audiences on behalf of beyondblue.

Our staff regularly support the charity Very Special Kids through a monthly voluntary donation program on ‘Casual Friday’. Very Special Kids cares for children with life-threatening conditions by providing a children’s hospice and professional family support services.
