Our involvement in Fiji
Our role in the Pacific is more than just providing banking and financial services. It's about being part of the stability and security of a sound financial system, playing an integral role in the local economy and contributing to the social and environmental well-being of local communities.

Westpac in the community
Our branches participate in Fun Dress Fridays, a monthly fundraising day to support select local charities. Our branch employees are also involved within their local communities for a range of charity work.
As Australia's first bank and one of the most sustainable banks in the world, we recognise that we have a role to play to help local communities better manage their money.
In 2008 we launched Financial First Steps - our financial literacy workshops for school students and community groups. They're run by our trained local employees and teach participants basic money management and budgeting skills.
Since then, we have expanded the number and type of workshops on offer to now also include Business Basics, Money Basics and Introduction to Financial Management.
The Westpac Women's Education Grants
These Grants give six girls/women each an opportunity to further their education with financial support from Westpac.
There are six Grants available - two Grants for each category: primary school girl ($500), high school/secondary college girl ($1,300) and female tertiary student/adult worker who wishes to return to study ($3,500).
Our sustainability performance
Being part of the Westpac Group, means we are also members of - or signatories to - a number of multi-stakeholder and international organisations and agreements dedicated to raising corporate responsibility performance.
