UMENCO supports Giant Steps

Umenco proudly supports Giant Steps, an organisation that aims to educate and empower young people with autism. Angela’s son Thomas is a student at the Giant Steps school, and his incredible openness to life, and the possibilities that lie before him, is woven into the Umenco DNA.

“Facing life’s challenges with Thomas has truly given me a sense of purpose, a greater capacity for compassion and understanding, and an ever-developing perspective that informs every aspect of my personal and professional life. Each day I want to create opportunity for those who are under-represented and find new, non-traditional ways to connect people, because of him. We make a great team.”

Umenco’s efforts to raise funds and awareness for this important cause include dedicated events and upcoming collaborations with leading Australian brands. Looking ahead, we will expand our fundraising work to support those struggling with mental health issues in the workplace and beyond. As our business grows, so does our commitment to helping the community around us.
