The team of Empower Change Consulting is actively involved in our (local) community. We also like giving back in the form of donating to charities and by sponsoring a selection of special events and inspiring individuals.
The team members of Empower Change Consulting are big advocates of supporting good causes. Below are a few examples of the charities supported and why we chose them specifically.
Starlight Children's Foundation
Because sick children are still kids at heart... When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and re-discover the joy of childhood.
"Being sick is terrible, especially for young kids. We believe the Starlight Foundation is a great cause to brighten up the little ones and make them forget about their illness and pain." -Frank & Kerri Yarsley
Animals Australia is Australia's foremost national animal protection organisation, representing some 40 member societies and thousands of individual supporters.
Animals Australia has an unprecedented track record in investigating and exposing animal cruelty and for conducting world-first strategic public awareness campaigns.
"I am a huge animal fan and I believe this foundation is taking all the right actions to protect the ones without a voice." -Marlie van Doorn

Frank Yarsley, Director of Empower Change Consulting and Business Solutions for IT, has been involved in the community for many years. He is also the deputy chairman of the IT Forum and co-founder of PICT, see more information below.
IT Forum Gold Coast
The IT Forum is a Gold Coast based non-profit organisation that works to improve ICT skills and employment opportunities on the Gold Coast. It is supported by the City of Gold Coast and with this support works as an umbrella organisation as well as offering support to other specialist ICT groups, advocating Gold Coast ICT to government and industry, working with TAFE and Griffith to offer students work experience and TAFE to offer skills pathways.
In respect to working to provide employment opportunities the Forum has set up Productive ICT to focus on this area.
Productive ICT Pty Ltd (PICT)
Productive ICT was set up to provide members with access to tenders and work that would normally require management outside of the member’s current capabilities. For alliance to work PICT is also working with committed members so that they have the documentation and capabilities that allow them to participate in the alliance work.
Events are a great way to get people together. However, it is often a lot of work to organise them and they cost money. Empower Change Consulting sponsors a few events per year in order to support local sports clubs and good initiative.
