A community that is Better Together

We believe we can build stronger communities when we work together to make a positive difference and support each other in times of need.  A community that is better together is one where we protect our most vulnerable and prioritise the health and wellbeing of our customers.

Coles Nurture Fund

In April 2015, Coles launched the $50 million Nurture Fund to help small to medium-sized businesses to innovate and grow.

Charity and community partners

Coles is proud of our 108-year contribution to Australia and is committed to serving the communities in which it operates.

Coles’ contribution to the community goes beyond being one of Australia’s largest employers. The business provides significant financial assistance and in-kind donations to national, state and local community partners.

We proudly support many community and charity partners to help Australians lead healthier and happier lives. Together with our customers, team members and suppliers, Coles provided more than $142 million in support to the community in the 2022 financial year.

Disaster relief

At Coles we want to support communities facing natural disasters such as floods, fires and cyclones. When disaster strikes, we come together with our customers to provide support relief efforts such as donating stock and contributing to fundraising campaigns.

Coles is making shopping easier for our customers. We're modifying our stores so they're more accessible and inclusive, improving digital accessibility on our website, and offering a number of programs and services that make it easier for everyone to shop with Coles both in store and online.

Responsible sale of alcohol and tobacco

Our vision to be the most trusted retailer in Australia carries specific responsibilities when operating our liquor stores in the community. We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our team and our customers and aim to always promote the responsible sale and consumption of alcohol and tobacco.
