Blackwoods’ support for the Fred Hollows Foundation's Indigenous Australia Health Program was established in 2006. Through proceeds from the sale of a select range of products and employee and supplier support, Blackwoods has contributed more than $1million to support Indigenous health programs in the past 12 years.

During the year Blackwoods reviewed its support to Fred Hollows Foundation and announced an improved contribution of 10 per cent of proceeds from the sale of Prosafe eye and face protection products going Fred Hollows Foundation. As a result Blackwoods contributed a donation of $600,000 this year alone.
