Whiddon has been providing exceptional care to older Australians across regional, rural and remote NSW and QLD for more than 70 years.
From our philanthropic beginnings, we have grown into a large not-for-profit organisation with more than 2,300 customers and over 2,000 people. We’re an award-winning aged care provider with residential care, community care and retirement villages across New South Wales and Queensland.
Whiddon is passionate about enriching lives and keeping older people connected to what matters most to them in life.
We invest back into our people, our communities and services, and we partner with academics and universities that are developing the latest thinking, innovation, programs and training around quality of life and ageing.
Our strong presence in regional, rural and remote NSW and QLD sets us at the heart of our local communities, both as an employer and aged care provider. We actively promote and maintain a proud sense of community – wherever we are, everyone matters.
Whiddon is a values-driven organisation that believes in making a real difference. We acknowledge our responsibility to manage modern slavery risk in our organisation and commit to complying with the provisions in the Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018.
We aim to ensure that all aspects of our operations and our extended supply chain are free from modern-day slavery in all its forms. We strive to act ethically and in accordance with laws and conventions both in Australia and overseas that protect workers and people everywhere that are touched by our business activities. We commit to working positively with our suppliers, clients, residents, employees and other stakeholders to assess and address modern slavery risks facing our organisation.
The Board of Directors would like to acknowledge the efforts of Whiddon’s Modern Slavery Committee to address this complex issue and prepare our 2021 Modern Slavery Statement.
