PPL Community Supports involvement approach is a holistic one. Combining financial, volunteer and resource support to assist organisations in making a positive difference. Many of our community involvement programs require and encourage us to be directly involved with community groups and non-profit organisations and their projects. When we support national or international causes, we do so on the basis that funding support goes directly to the cause and benefit of those in need within the communities for which we have provided support.

Programs and Areas of Focus
While we support many organisations, national and international causes, it has always been our goal to look for ways we can help improve the local communities where our associates and members live.
PPL Community Support wherever possible works in partnership with local organisations, schools, charities and individuals, seeking to improve the quality of life within the communities we serve. By carefully directing our support, fund-raising efforts and the generous contributions of the company, its associates and members, we actively support a variety of worthy causes in the following areas:
As a subsidiary of the country's leading provider of Legal Service Plans ( Pre-Paid Legal Services ) we are proud to be engaged in efforts to reduce hunger. PPL Community Support itself and through its relationship with Vaultone has strived to support local food banks and hunger relief programs. Vaultone has been one of the countries most active supporters of the Nations Food Bank Program and has had the full support of Pre-Paid Legal Services and its subsidiaries since inception.
We have long recognised the critical importance education plays in building strong communities and its role in ensuring their future growth. To this extent we are always actively searching for ways to support and contribute more to schools and education institutions both local and abroard through our fund-raising programs and initiatives. It is our belief that children are the life blood of any community and can to often be neglected through no fault of their own. It is one of our missions to help wherever possible to provide opportunities for learning so that they may better understand the world in which they live in and become better prepared for what life has to offer, so that they may make their own choices and enjoy life full of hope and stability and the well-being it can bring.
Health and Human Services
We support vital health and human services such as woman`s and men's shelters, health screening, diabetes research, cancer research and child welfare programs to name but a few. We actively support efforts to improve awareness, detection and treatment of breast cancer, prostate cancer, bowl cancer and the Muscular Dystrophy Association in its fight against neuromuscular disease.
We support those agencies and organisations that help people with disabilities and other special needs. Since its inception Pre-Paid Legal through PPL Community Support has actively sought to assist those within our communities with special needs. Providing support and assistance to organisations such as The Salvation Army, Anglicare, Red Cross, Make a Wish, Rotary and others. Supporting regional, national and international programs that assist people with disabilities and other special needs through financial and in kind assistance to those causes we believe will make a substantial difference to the lives and well being of those in need.
Through our associate and membership programs we actively support the victims of natural disasters and other tragedies and will continue to do so. PPL Community Support has always sought to assist those within our communities both locally and abroad who have been left devastated by fire, flood, earthquake or other natural disasters. With support of organisations such as The Salvation Army, Anglicare, Red Cross and others, we have donated substantially in cash, food, clothing and in kind assistance to provide much needed emergency relief and support in the rebuilding efforts of those communities devastated by nature's impact upon them.
PPL Community Support through various volunteer programs and initiatives it supports, encourages the opportunity for members to make a difference to someone else`s life by working with others directly to assist those within our communities both locally and abroad less fortunate and in need. In 2008 we began actively seeking to partner with organizations that offered quality projects in genuine need of volunteer assistance that were well organised, properly managed and supervised with international access to programs that our members could personally particpate in supporting.
