Workplace Giving

Scarf is a member of one of Australia’s leading Workplace Giving platforms, Good2Give. Good2Give’s approach to workplace giving is this: “Give a little – gain a lot. Businesses that invest in communities make a positive difference and realise benefits beyond just ‘doing good’. When companies give, they create thriving communities for future talent, retain star performers, attract customers and clients, and build brands that inspire loyalty and trust.” Read more

Who We Work With

Scarf provides front of house training opportunities to young people (18-28 years) seeking protection, and those from refugee or migrant backgrounds facing barriers to work. Scarf programs offer training, mentoring and paid work experience in real restaurants. Scarf graduates finish the program with local references and strong networks into the Melbourne hospitality industry. 70% of Scarf graduates find employment within six months of completing the program.
